Marywood event-goers can now purchase tickets for campus events online.

University Tickets is a ticketing system that allows online ticket sale transactions. The new system gives customers the ability to make online credit card ticket purchases for various events on campus.

According to Louis Pasqualicchio, centralized scheduling manager, University Tickets can also track attendance and reserve spaces for events.

“After purchasing a ticket, a student may print an e-ticket, pick up a will call ticket, or simply check in at an event,” said Pasqualicchio. “Tickets may be purchased with a credit card from the site or through in-person cash transactions.”

Students can access University Tickets through the MarywoodYou portal.

The general public can also utilize the online ticketing system to purchase tickets for theater, music, and dance performances. The public can access the system at http://marywood.universitytickets.com.

Pasqualicchio added that University Tickets may also be used by any campus organization.

“Campus Ministry, the Office of Military and Veterans Affairs, and Athletics have expressed interest in using University Tickets in the near future,” said Pasqualicchio.

The Student Activities Crew (SAC) has already used the system for bus trips, orientation, and homecoming.

Dr. Paulette Merchel, acting theatre program director, said that when using the new system, patrons will be able to “pull up a diagram of the theatre and select their seats, print out an e-ticket, or choose to pick up the ticket at the box office will call window.”

Merchel said the online ticketing system is convenient because tickets can be purchased in a matter of minutes.

“The system has brought a level of professionalism that was lacking in the promotion of our performance events. We can now advertise online reservations,” said Merchel.
