2017 Student Ticketing FAQ

Q: What’s new in 2017?


Students now have a centralized URL ( to access important links for registering their CUID account, logging into their online account for ticket distribution, and accessing detailed information regarding student ticketing for Clemson Athletics.

2. Improved Online Queueing Technology

Students will log in to their account and request their ticket online for the 2017 season. In addition, students will notice a new technology to track their progress in the virtual line created by the distribution process. The Queue-It Technology will assist the online process by forming a virtual line based on the time a student enters the ticket distribution. Click here to see a sample of what you can expect to see with the Queue-It Technology.

3. Block Seating & General Admission Seating

Block seating will not be offered for the 2017 season. Instead, seating in the student areas of the stadium will be general admission and students who wish to sit together should enter the stadium and their designated seating area/portal together. Students must, however, sit in the correct student area of the stadium that he or she received during online ticket distribution.

For example, if you received a lower deck ticket for Game 1 and your friend received a Hill ticket, you and your friend may not sit together as you must sit in the Lower Deck and your friend must sit on the Hill.

4. Additional Stadium Entry Option

Students who receive tickets on the Hill may enter Memorial Stadium via Gate 5 on the northeast corner of the stadium at designated student entry points to help alleviate the strain placed on Gate 1. Students with Hill tickets will be sent an email notification if they are to use Gate 5 prior to game day.
