I am a student, can I just use my UCF ID in order to enter the Stadium?
UCF Athletics has announced a new student ticketing platform which will improve the entry process for you at UCF football games. You will now have access to a mobile ticketing platform through your smart devices that will allow you to claim your ticket. This new platform will also provide a convenient way for you to purchase football guest passes. Our new mobile ticketing platform will also help us keep an eye on the number of student tickets claimed and allow us to communicate directly with you in an effort to make sure as many of you get into the game as possible.

Please visit on your mobile device to sign up. Once you've signed up, you will receive notification when student tickets are available for each game. You'll then utilize your mobile device to claim your free ticket for each game. UCF student identification cards are still necessary when you arrive to the game. You will need to show your UCF ID along with your mobile ticket, but your UCF ID will no longer be scanned.

There are step-by-step videos on UCF Athletics social media platforms and more information at to assist you in this new process.

Please note, claiming a ticket for game does NOT guarantee entry to the game. We are still encouraging you to arrive early to ensure you are in the stadium to see the Knights play. Again, we are expecting the student sections to fill up quickly for each home game. As always, entry to all UCF Athletics events are free for students.
