Q: What tips are there for buying tickets online?
- Only buy tickets from the official ticket source, which is the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts at UBC. Official tickets are sold through this website, tickets.ubc.ca, by phone at 604-822-2697, or in person at 6265 Crescent Road.
- Tickets purchased through a reseller have the potential to be fraudulent or duplicate tickets. Only one entry per ticket is permitted. In the event of a dispute between duplicate tickets, the name in our system associated with the ticket purchase will be allowed entry.
- If the performance you would like to purchase does not have any available seats, don’t give up. Sometimes tickets become available closer to the performance date. Check back at a later date.
- Purchase your ticket as early as possible to avoid disappointment. Many Chan Centre shows sell out, and purchasing in advance gives you the best seat locations at the best price.
