I've done it a number of times over the past few years and was always asked for my ID at the Union. I also agree that those checking ID's don't look too hard, but if you're making a long trip, just find a student who's willing to walk up with their IDs and have them validate it for you.
Student tix question
Anyway, my brother and I purchased student tickets on stub hub and it says student ID or validation required. As someone who is driving up from Virginia on Friday, can someone tell me how we get the validation. Or are we screwed? Stub hub obviously had this no where listed. Thanks in advance.
I've had non-UM students come to games with me and we go to the North gate and they validate the tickets for $25 without any need for an M-Card.
You can have them validated at Gate 9 starting at 10am Saturday until halftime.
Here is the link. It doesn't mention needing a student ID to have it validated, but I am not sure.
You will also want to look at this link.
It states that a student ID is required to validate the tickets. Whenever I have had tickets validated, I have presented my ID, although I may have provided it without being asked in every case.
You should absolutely be able to find a student in the Michigan Union Friday night before they close around 6 or Saturday morning before the game to validate it for you if you hand them the cash, so I wouldn't be too worried.
MUTO is open from 9am-1pm on game days for validations. However, validations can be done at the stadium at Student Will Call inside Gate 9 on the North end of the stadium. Validation at the stadium is only available from two hours before kickoff, until half-time on game days only
Per Michigan Union Ticket Office http://www.umich.edu/~muto/faq.html
Go to the ticket office on the side of the stadium. Give them your money and they'll put a sticker on your ticket to get in. It's no big deal and you'll be fine.
I think it's labeled as "Will Call."
For the responses. I just read it should cost about the same amount as the ticket reads because students get half off. Hopefully that's all. Go blue!
I think it's like $39 to validate for each one validated. At least that's what it's been in the past.
if you want it done early, go to the union ticket office and ask any random student around to do it for you, it will take all of about 2 seconds ...
i know you can also do it at the game and they may let you do it without a student, but i have never used this method
Everyone pretty much had it right:
You need EITHER a student ID or to get them validated, not both.
They don't look at UM ID's too closely though so if you can use someone else's then you'd be good to go. I've gotten through the gates with someone of the opposite gender and someone of a different race no problem.
Hell, you can straight up forge one. I've done it several times. Thank god for photoshop.
I need to borrow 2 mgostudent ids or pay 34 a pop. Sounds good.
The staff checking IDs are a complete joke. As long as you have an Mcard, you're in. I had friends visit from other big 10 schools wearing opposing team jerseys and enter with my spare Mcard.
I've had black friends get in with white IDs, girls get in with male IDs, etc. I guess they don't have time to look closely.
Look on the bright side...you get to sit in the student section!
He better not sit
Stub hub should take care of you. The tickets are 'guaranteed'. Give them a call and they will get you tickets, like you paid for.
I think you're missing part of the point. You still need a student id (MCard) to get the tickets validated. But you don't need to borrow an id to get in if you get validated, which is technically illegal and they have ticketed people in the past for this. So even if you pay $34 a ticket, you still also need to get a student to help you validate it. As in a student needs to show their MCard, give them $34 for each ticket, and they need to put a sticker on each of your tickets. So in conclusion, you need to find a student, take him to either MUTO or will call on game day, you guys need to hand over $68 and then you guys will be set. I also suggest finding a random student in the area to help you out, they're usually kind enough. I just don't want you to come down here looking to validate it yourselves and get screwed.
You should have no problem finding a student to validate it for you in either the Union or at the will call booth on game day. There will be students everywhere and most of us would be kind enough to help someone out who was in this situation.
Me and a few friends went in the Union to get something to eat before the iowa game and there was this lady that asked me to validate her tickets for her..I validated like 4 and she gave me $25 for a walk down the stairs. It was awesome
This Saturday? Haha.
As soon as im going in the gates I just ask a student to let me use his ID after they get in. No need to pay that ridiculous amount to get it validated it works everytime.
Hell, I'm a student. Id be willing to validate it for you
