UChicago Presents is committed to developing the audience for the world’s best music. To support our mission of bringing the best artists in the world to Chicago and sharing the power of live performances with people of all ages, we offer free and discounted tickets to youth and students.
Free Youth Tickets
Children aged 6–17 may receive free tickets to a UChicago Presents performance when accompanying an adult. Up to 2 free tickets per paid adult ticket are available. Please register your children when you purchase your tickets online at tickets.uchicago.edu or with the Box Office (773.702.ARTS (2787)).
Teens aged 13-19 are also eligible to purchase $5 tickets to any of our concerts on the day of the performance. TAP is a new initiative by Urban Gateways that gives young people access to $5 tickets to see professional dance, music, and theater performances in and around Chicago. With your free TAP membership, all you have to do is present your card at a participating venue on the day of the show, and as long as it’s not sold out, you can purchase a ticket (with a possible value of up to $200+) for $5 cash. It’s that easy!
Students with a valid ID from any educational institution are eligible to purchase $10 student tickets. Tickets can be purchased online (tickets.uchicago.edu), over the phone at 773.702.ARTS (2787), or in person at the UChicago Arts Box Office. For online purchases, please present your student ID at Will Call. We only award one ticket per Student ID.
