The office no longer accepts student charge as payment.
Mar. 06, 2019
The University Concert Series acquired the MU Student Center Ticket Office on Jan. 1.
Robert Wells, manager of the University Concert Series, said that the office will continue selling tickets for student organizations who work out a contract with the office and The Blue Note. They no longer accept student charge as payment.
“Student charge is going away for concert tickets regardless,” Wells said. “That was a decision the campus made a year ago. We moved the timetable up just a little because of all the transition that is going on, knowing that it was going away anyways.”
Additionally, the office’s hours have been cut. Previously, the office was open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the weekdays. With the change in ownership, however, the office is now only open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
“We want to expand the hours, but we’re having trouble hiring people to work in the Student Center Ticket Office,” Wells said. “Right now we’ve cut back on the hours just because we don’t have the personnel, but we can expand those hours if we can find appropriate people to train and work.”
There has been no formal announcement to inform students of the change and the office’s website still lists the old information. The office’s Twitter has also not been updated to reflect the change. Wells said that the ticket office hopes to update the website and Twitter soon.
