Anyone! Once the tickets are purchased by a valid NYU ID-holder and picked up at our box office by the ticket purchaser, anyone can enjoy the show/event. The NYU ID-holder does not have to be present when the tickets are redeemed.
NYU Box Office is always searching for the lowest prices on tickets available in large quantities so that we can resell them to the NYU community. NYU Box Office neither subsidizes the cost of the tickets to provide a discount to customers, nor do we inflate the price of the tickets to make a profit. The price of tickets reflects the actual cost of the ticket, plus $2.00 to cover the cost of shipping and handling that the venue charges us to obtain the tickets and to help defray the expense of the student cashiers and technology needed to sell these tickets to NYU students and staff. For more information on the price of a specific offer, please contact us at email@example.com.
The amount of tickets that NYU Box Office obtains from ticket vendors for each offer is based on many factors, such as the popularity of the show within the NYU community, the number of discounted tickets the venue provides, and the price of the tickets. We enforce a ticket limit to ensure that all of the customers who wish to buy tickets have a fair chance of purchasing them.
Many of our ticket prices reflect a significant discount from the original retail price. However, for popular shows that tend to sell out quickly, NYU Box Office purchases and sells tickets at retail value as a service to the NYU community. Information on retail prices for shows/events tickets can be found at broadway.com.
Tickets are distributed to patrons in the order in which they were purchased online, with the first to purchase tickets receiving the best seats from the allotment of tickets.

We are able to fulfill over 99% of our orders of 2 or more tickets with adjacent seats. In the unlikely event that the venue has allotted us tickets that prevent us from filling your order with adjacent seats, we will offer you a full refund of the single seats in your order.
If you have a specific seating request - such as for an aisle seat, or for two orders to be seated together - you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to accommodate you.
You do not need to email us to request that seats be together in an order or two orders purchased by the same person.
