Concert Policy


Students and guests

Policy Statement

Admission for SU students, alumni, and guests to concerts occurring on Syracuse University- owned, -operated, or controlled property requires a valid ticket and a valid SU or ESF ID, or picture ID that proves that the individual is enrolled in college or is 18 years of age or older. In general, persons under 18 years of age who cannot produce valid college identification must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian for admittance and throughout the performance. However, Syracuse University reserves the right to deny access entirely to persons under age 18.

Entrance requirements include patrons being searched for weapons, alcohol, and other drugs. Entrance will be prohibited to persons appearing to be intoxicated or under the influence of alcohol or drugs. No beverage containers are permitted inside the facility before, during, or after the event. In addition, backpacks, weapons, beverage containers, recording devices, canes, and sticks (or other hand carried implements), will not be allowed into the event. If discovered inside, the patron must surrender the items in question or leave the event.

Attendees will not be allowed readmission once they have departed from the venue. Once the event reaches capacity, admission will end for the evening. No waiting line will be maintained after capacity is reached. Any patron of an activity held on Syracuse University owned, operated, or controlled property who is found participating in unsafe practices (e.g. moshing, slam dancing, etc.) as determined by the Department of Public Safety, the Department of Risk Management, or other University officials, is expected to cooperate with the request of an SU official to discontinue the practice. Patrons are further required to adhere to all other University policies governing behavior. Violators of this policy are subject to referral to the University Judicial System for disciplinary action and/or referral to law enforcement for other appropriate action.
