The student section is comprised of sections P, O, N, M, L, K, and the upper part of section J. Students must enter Camp Randall Stadium, and the student section, through Gate 5, which is located on the north end of the stadium near Breese Terrace and the practice field.
How to purchase tickets
Wisconsin Football student season tickets are sold online at UWBadgers.com. Student season tickets for all seven home games in 2014 are $168, plus a $20 processing fee.
To purchase tickets online, all students will need their Student ID number (also referred to as a Campus ID number).
All returning undergraduate and graduate students should use their student ID number and their existing password to purchase student season tickets. It is recommended that returning students login to their online account a few days prior to the on-sale to avoid possible problems with accessing their account once the on-sale begins.
All new students and those students who have never purchased student tickets online will need their student ID number to activate their online account prior to purchasing tickets. Incoming full-time undergraduate students will have almost two weeks to activate their online account (starting early June) while graduate and professional students will have slightly less time (starting early July). The exact account activation dates are to be determined and will be posted once known.
Ticket On-Sale Dates
Two separate on sale dates have been established for undergraduate and graduate and professional students. All full-time undergraduate students (continuing students, incoming freshmen, transfer students and Connection students) can begin purchasing their student football season tickets on Monday, June 16, at 7:30 a.m. CDT. The sale will take place online at UWBadgers.com while supplies last.
All full-time graduate and professional students (returning graduate and professional students and incoming graduate and professional students) can begin purchasing their tickets on Thursday, July 10, at 7:30 a.m. CDT. Tickets are going on sale to graduate and professional students after the undergraduate ticket sale due to the later admittance of many incoming graduate and professional school students. Like the undergraduate student sale, all graduate and professional student season tickets will be sold online at UWBadgers.com and will be available while supplies remain.
Since the undergraduate sale takes place more than three weeks prior to the graduate student sale, a total of 1,700 tickets will be held for graduate and professional students. This allotment is based on historical sales data. In the unlikely event any graduate and professional student season tickets remain unsold after 4:30 p.m. CDT on July 10, any full-time undergraduate, graduate or professional student who has not yet purchased tickets for 2014 would be eligible to buy these unsold tickets beginning at 7:30 a.m. CDT on Friday, July 11 until they are sold out.
Ticket Voucher Pick-Up
Student season ticket-holders may begin picking up their season ticket vouchers from the Athletic Ticket Office on Tuesday, August 26. Until further notice, all vouchers will be picked up at the ticket windows at Gate 9, on the west side of Camp Randall Stadium on Breese Terrace. Please see the voucher pick-up schedule below for days and times in which students can pick up their vouchers before the first home game. Vouchers are not mailed to students. Students may only pick-up their own set of vouchers, students are not allowed to pick-up vouchers for other students. Students must present a valid UW-Madison student ID (WISCARD) to pick-up vouchers. Each voucher set includes one voucher for all seven home games, which are redeemed on game day for access to the student section. Students are encouraged to pick-up their vouchers in advance of the first home game vs. Western Illinois on Saturday, September 6. The 2014 voucher pick-up schedule is as follows:
It's also important to note that the last day vouchers may be picked-up is Friday, September 26. Students who do not pick up their vouchers by September 26 will have their vouchers voided and will not receive a refund.
Game Day Voucher Exchange
On game day, students exchange their ticket voucher for admission into Camp Randall Stadium at Gate 5, which is located on the north end of the stadium near Breese Terrace and the practice field. Voucher exchange begins 90 minutes prior to kickoff, when the stadium gates open.
At the perimeter of Gate 5, students will go through security and have their vouchers scanned by ticket-takers. Once inside the Gate 5 perimeter, students will be presented with a series of section chutes, which correspond to different sections of the student section. (P, O, N, M etc.) Students will be able to choose which section they want to sit in, by going through the chute that is labeled with their desired section.
Once students go through a section chute, they will receive a section reserved ticket from a representative of the Athletic Ticket Office. Each student is expected to sit in the section printed on their section reserved ticket. Groups of friends should make sure to enter the same section chute at the same time in order to be allocated tickets in the same section.
Once students enter the stadium and receive their ticket, students may not exit the stadium and re-enter just by showing their ticket. Students who exit the stadium may only re-enter the stadium if they have another valid unused voucher to exchange. Students also must sit in their designated section and must have their ticket in hand at all times or are subject to removal from Camp Randall Stadium.
