Ticket Office Information

Buying tickets is easy! Here’s how:

In Person

We are closed on Mondays during the summer (Memorial Day through Labor Day). Our regular ticket office hours at the Iowa State Center Ticket Office, located at the north end of Stephens Auditorium, are Monday-Friday from 12pm (noon)-6pm and until curtain time for weekday performances. The ticket office is open 90 minutes prior to show time on weekend events. Free parking is available in Lot F when purchasing tickets during regular business hours. Lot F is located on the west side of Stephens Auditorium.

Google Maps


Ticketmaster.com is the official online ticket provider for events at the Iowa State Center. Tickets from other online sources may be illegitimate and/or more expensive. Please be aware of third party ticket sites that look like the Iowa State Center Ticket Office site.

On www.center.iastate.edu, click on the Tickets or Buy Now buttons or go to www.ticketmaster.com to purchase tickets. When purchasing tickets online, look closely at the URL to ensure that you are on the correct site.  Tickets purchased from sources other than Ticketmaster may be counterfeit and may not be accepted at the event.
