The Bryce Jordan Center Is At Capacity

If you’re looking to get into the BJC for the home stretch of THON, you may be out of luck.

THON announced the BJC is currently at capacity, and the digital wristband queue is open. This is the second time in THON 2016 the BJC has been at capacity after not hitting it in 2015.

The THON website says once the arena is at full capacity, R&R will close the doors to spectators hoping to get in. The people waiting in line will be placed in a digital queue based on the number on their wristband.

THON says it will release information and the numbers allowed to enter the building every hour on the hour. Anyone selected to enter the BJC will have 45 minutes to arrive or they will lose their spot in line. More information about the process can be found on THON’s website.

We’ll have updates if the BJC is reopened to the public, although it’s unlikely that will happen. As of 4:45 a.m., the line to enter the BJC reached past the Blue Loop stop.
