Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can I get tickets?

  • That depends on where the performance is located.
    • For performances in the Union please visit
    • For performances in the Murchison Performing Arts Center please visit
    • For performances in the UNT Coliseum please visit
    • Exhibitions in the UNT Art Gallery never require tickets
  • Tickets can also be purchased at the door for every event, beginning at least half an hour before the performance begins. However, it is advised that everyone secure their tickets in advance to ensure a seat in case of a sold-out event.
  • Advanced tickets are available online only! There is no physical box office or place where physical tickets can be bought ahead of time (besides at the door a half-hour before the event, as mentioned above).   

Q: How much do tickets cost?

  • That depends based on the performance and a variety of other factors. We have three tiers of pricing: current UNT Students are always free, UNT Faculty/Staff/Alumni Association members receive a discounted price, and a general admission price.

Q: Why are UNT students allowed to get tickets for free?

  • The Mary Jo & V. Lane Rawlins Fine Arts Series is presented with the generous support of UNT Student Service Fees. Therefore, UNT students can attend any and all of our performances free of charge, so long as there are still tickets available.

Q: Where can I park?

  • Public transportation, biking, and walking are always encouraged! 
    • For events at the University Union, we would suggest parking in the Union Circle Garage or the Highland Street Garage.
      • The Union Circle Garage is a Parkmobile garage.  There is no attendant and no cash accepted. Pay for parking using a credit card in the Kiosk machine (outside spaces) which gives you a ticket to put in your dash.  Or park anywhere and pay (before leaving your car!) by downloading the app on your smartphone.  The rate is $2.25 per hour. 
      • The Highland Street Garage (located at Ave A and Highland Streets) accepts cash or credit.  The rate is $2.00 per hour.
    • For events at the Murchison Performing Arts Center or the UNT Coliseum, the ticketing site will include the option to purchase an event-specific parking pass. This pass will indicate which lot to park in for that event.  Typically, Fouts Field (Lots 19 and 20, on North Texas Boulevard) is the most common parking area for these venues.

Q: What should I wear?

Q: Are drinks/food allowed in the venues?

  • Concessions are available in the UNT Coliseum on a case-by-case basis. Please contact our office for more information.

  • Permission for late seating is determined by each performance and is permitted in most cases. For certain events, you may be asked to wait for a pause before entering. Please feel free to ask if you are not sure.

  • Many performances are copyrighted and the use of cameras/picture phones with or without a flash or any other type of recording device is strictly prohibited. Violators may be asked to leave the performance. Cameras and phones should be placed in a pocket or purse when in the performance.
  • On some occasions, the performer may let you know that they would like you to take photos and share them on various social media platforms. If that is the case, then please feel free! But tag us too! @untfinearts We want to hear from you too!
