Student Gate Procedures For Men's Basketball Games
Nov. 7, 2012
MEMPHIS - -
Full-time University of Memphis students (those enrolled in six or more hours for this purpose) receive free admission to Memphis men's basketball games at FedExForum. However, students must have their University of Memphis Student ID with them to be scanned on entry into the student gate at FedExForum.
Part-time students (five hours or less) may purchase a student ticket for just $7.00 at the Athletic Ticket Office, located in the Penny Hardaway Hall of Fame in the Athletic Office Building, located at 570 Normal on the corner of Normal and Southern. Part-time student tickets WILL NOT be sold at FedExForum on Wednesday night.
Student guest tickets are also available. Students can bring one guest for each game by purchasing a student guest ticket for $10, while supplies last. Guest tickets are only available for purchase at the Athletic Ticket Office, guest tickets WILL NOT be sold at FedExForum. A limited number of guest tickets will be available for each game and will be on sale according to the following schedule:
Students and persons holding student guest tickets must enter through the student gate.
Please note: There will be an assigned seat system for this year's games. After ID's are scanned (and guest tickets taken) at FedExForum, each student (and guest) will be given an assigned seat for the game, which will then be scanned by FedExForum personnel. Students (and guests) wishing to sit together must enter together. As a general rule, seats will be assigned on a first come - first served basis, starting with the lower level of the student section and, after those seats are filled, moving to the upper level of the student section.
Fall students' IDs will be valid for entry to games through January 15, 2013. For students enrolled for the spring 2013 semester, ID's will be valid beginning January 9, 2013.
If your ID card is damaged, you may receive a free replacement ID card at the Campus Card Office on the 5th floor of Wilder Tower upon presentation of your damaged card.
Please note that if your ID card is used by someone else, your ID will be confiscated and turned over to the Office of Student Conduct.
There are a limited number of seats in the student section at FedExForum. If all seats in the student section are filled, no more students (or guests) can be admitted, although every effort will be made to find additional seating.
Students who are registered with Student Disability Services who may need assistance with special seating should contact Mr. Eddie Cantler at firstname.lastname@example.org at least 24 hours prior to each game if they wish to attend.
Basketball Parking for UofM Students
The Student Government Association has leased a parking lot adjacent to the FedEx Forum for the exclusive use of U of M students. The lot is free and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis for all home basketball games. Students must present a valid University of Memphis ID to be admitted to the lot. The lot opens three hours prior to each game and, for the safety of the vehicles that park there, the lot will be attended throughout each game. For directions to the lot, click HERE.
