Stadium Re-entry Policy & Alumni Center Access

Texas Athletics has a policy in place this season that prohibits fans from leaving the stadium and then re-entering, except for the Alumni Center. From the start of the second quarter to the end of the third, fans can get from the stadium to the Alumni Center through Gate 7, which is directly in front of the Alumni Center across San Jacinto, through a monitored pass-through. All tickets will be scanned in and out, and all ticket holders are subject to a security inspection.

Member Football Ticket Service

The Texas Exes Member Ticket Service will continue this year. Ticket holders who cannot attend a home game may send them to the Texas Exes so we may offer them for resale to members at the Alumni Center.  For many years, we sold tickets for their face value. As with last year, a member of the Texas Athletics Box Office staff will assign a Gameday market value price.

Open: 3 hours to 15 minutes before kickoff

Location: Alumni Center, John Jackson Room (located just inside from the Central Porch)

  • Tickets are available for purchase by Life and Associate Life Members for the first TWO hours of the tailgate.
  • Tickets are available for purchase by all members the last 45 minutes of the tailgate.
  • There is a 4-ticket limit.
  • Tickets are sold at the gameday market value.
  • The ticket owner may elect to receive a check for the face value of sold tickets or to direct the proceeds to the Texas Exes General Scholarship Fund as a tax-deductible donation.
  • All proceeds above the face value of sold tickets will benefit the Texas Exes’ and Texas Athletics Scholarship Funds.

If you want us to attempt to sell your tickets, contact the Texas Exes Ticket Service Line at: (512) 840-5638 or (800) 925-7483. You may also mail your tickets to P.O. Box 7278, Austin, TX, 78713. Please be sure to include your name and contact information. For additional questions about the Tickets for Scholarships program, email Manny Pena at manny.pena@texasexes.org.
