University of Iowa student tickets go electronic

Andy Williams   ||   Sep 18, 2012  ||   

The University of Iowa becomes another university to abandon traditional paper sports tickets, opting instead to electronically add the tickets to students’ campus cards. The change-over will begin with the school’s basketball season this winter and continue into football the following year.

All season tickets for the student sections will be distributed electronically onto student campus cards. Game day ticket-takers will use handheld scanners to check the electronic student tickets stored on their ID cards.

This will save the university’s printing costs plus the hours spent distributing the tickets. Now, students will only have to remember their IDs to get into the games.

Students without season tickets will still be able to buy single game passes for the student section if they’re available. Those tickets can be printed off or picked up at the window on game day and presented at the gate with a student ID.

Students will also be allowed to go online and transfer their ticket electronically to another student’s ID.
