  • Extension Students: Any extension student besides those in the Fall Program For Freshmen is not eligible to purchase any kind of student ticket due to the fact that they are not considered admitted students to the University.

Exchange students must present the Cal Athletic Tickets Office with their proof of registration as well as their student identification card. The Cal Athletic Ticket Office will then create an account for the student and issue them general admission paper tickets, located in the Cal Student Section.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS REGARDING FOOTBALL STUDENT PASSES:
I already have my student ID - Do I have to buy football student season pass?

  • Cal students must still purchase football season passes online at www.calbears.com and will then use their Cal 1 card, with the purchase imbedded in the card, to be admitted into home football games.
  • PURCHASING A STUDENT FOOTBALL SEASON PASS DOES NOT GUARANTEE ADMITTANCE TO THE STUDENT SECTION. STUDENTS WILL BE ADMITTED ON A FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE BASIS. ONCE CAPACITY IN THE STUDENT SECTION HAS BEEN REACHED, STUDENTS WILL BE REDIRECTED TO STANDING ROOM ONLY STUDENT SECTIONS.

If I can't go to the game, can somebody else use my pass?

  • Student season passes are transferrable per game and only to other students via ticket transfer online. Once a student logs into their online account they will see the option to transfer their tickets and just need to follow the simple online instructions. A student must have their Cal 1 card and Print at Home ticket in order to gain entrance into the stadium.

What happens if I lose my student ID?

  • Cal 1 cards can be replaced at 180 Cesar Chavez Center, Lower Sproul Plaza - 510-643-6839. The old ID will be read as invalid if someone tries to use it for admission into a football game. The new ID will have the football season pass purchase information on it.

What if I forget my Cal 1 card?

  • Cal Students without their valid Cal 1 card will not be admitted into the game. There are NO exceptions.

Is there assigned seating?

  • At the student gate, students are issued a wristband for general admission to sections SS, S, RR and R upon presenting a valid Cal 1 card with a student season pass. Students wishing to sit together should arrive together.

After I have purchased a season pass on www.CalBears.com do I need to pick anything up?

  • The student will only need their Cal 1 card with the Cal student number that corresponds to the online purchase. Student spouse passes are paper tickets which need to be picked up at the Cal Athletic Ticket Office. Students can pick up your game day t-shirt during Welcome Week. (More information will be provided at a later date.)

What if there is a problem scanning my ID?

  • Please see the Cal Athletic Ticket Office representative at the Student Gate during the game to assist you with any issues.

What can I do to get into the game faster?

  • Arrive earlier! The student gate opens 2 hours before kickoff. For kickoff times please refer towww.CalBears.com

What do I do on game day to enter the stadium?

  • As long as the student has purchased your Cal Football season pass on www.CalBears.com you only need your Cal 1 card for admission to the student gate.

Can I be refunded?

  • No, there are no refunds or exchanges. All sales are final!

What if I decide not to come to Cal or transfer to another school but already purchased my football season pass?

  • All sales are final.

Why does the Cal Athletic Ticket Office not mail student tickets?

  • The Cal Athletic Ticket Office's student data is uploaded from BearFacts every night. The addresses cannot be changed in our system and are often incorrect. Having students pick up passes and tickets ensures everyone will receive the passes and tickets they ordered.

Can I purchase single home game student tickets?

  • The student section sells out every year so there are not any single game student tickets available for home games. If a student wishes to attend a home game they can purchase tickets at the regular public price but will not be able to sit in the student section.

My friend is visiting me and wants to go to the game. Can they purchase a single game ticket?

  • Your friend would be able to purchase a ticket to the game at the regular public price in a non-student section. We do not offer any sort of student discount and do not allow non-student season ticket holders in the student section.
