Student Ticket Week Begins Today

Today marks the beginning of Penn State student ticket week, a period during which select football, basketball, hockey, and student Nittany Lion Club tickets become available. Set for August 31-Sept. 10, students can purchase tickets for Saturday’s football game at Temple and entire season deals or select games for basketball and hockey. Plus, students can secure a complimentary Student Nittany Lion Club membership.

Here’s what you need to know:


It may be too late by the time you read this, but students interested in attending the Lions’ opener at Temple can hike out to Gate B of the the Bryce Jordan Center on Monday at 7 a.m. Select students tickets will be available on a first-come, first-served basis for the showdown at Lincoln Financial Field.

Students can buy one $50 ticket with a valid student ID. All sales must be in cash; credit cards, checks, and Lion Cash will not be accepted. If you want to sit with a friend, you’ll need to make your purchase together on Monday morning. You can get there at 6 a.m. to secure a spot on line.


Student season tickets are available for Penn State’s Big Ten Conference games beginning at at 10 a.m. on Sept. 1 for $24. You won’t have to wake up early and run to the BJC to purchase these tickets; all sales will be conducted through the Student Account Manager here. All non-conference home games, except for those at Rec Hall, are free for students this year.

If you purchase the Big Ten season ticket package, you’ll have priority on Penn State’s two Rec Hall games which will take place on Dec. 10 and 12 through the Las Vegas Classic. Tickets for the two games will be $13, with details announced later this semester.

As an added bonus for purchasing season tickets, students will receive a complimentary 2015-16 Student Nittany Lion Club membership. A membership, which is a $25 value, grants you priority in purchasing football bowl tickets and further ticket-purchasing opportunities upon graduating.

Men’s Hockey

Tickets for Penn State hockey’s 16-game home schedule begins Thursday, Sept. 3 at 7 a.m. Instead of trekking to the Bryce Jordan Center, the online sale for the student section will require a MyTicketmaster account, which can be created here. Tickets will cost $143 dollars, and won’t include the Jan. 8-9 games against Minnesota during winter break.

Those who purchase season tickets will be granted priority to buy two tickets for the team’s International Game vs. the University of Windsor, beginning at 10 a.m. on Sept. 9. Tickets for the Oct. 4 matchup will run $8. If all tickets aren’t sold out during the pre-sale, all students can purchase them at 10 a.m. on Sept. 10.

Student Nittany Lion Club

Students that purchase a membership on Sept. 2 will receive an extra NLC priority point, valued at $50. It’s $25 for a membership, and you can join by calling 814-865-9462, or clicking here.
