What is will-call?
Will call is a location where one may pick up tickets purchased without sufficient time to mail or if an individual prefers to pick up their order. Will call orders may be picked up at the Jerome Schottenstein Center prior to the day of the event or starting 90 minutes prior to the start of the event.

In order to pick up your will call tickets, you will be required to present:

  • Your valid state or government issued photo ID, driver's license or passport. A valid ID must be duly issued by a government agency and include a photo and a signature
  • The credit card you used to purchase the tickets if necessary

The Ohio State Ticket Office will not release tickets if the name on the ID and credit card does not match the name used to purchase the tickets, or if the photo on the ID does not appear to be the photo of the person retrieving the tickets. The original ticket holder may designate another individual to pick up their tickets by contacting us in writing prior to event day. Requests must be approved by the Ohio State Ticket Office.

Please Note: The Ohio State Ticket Office will no longer accept outside will call. Outside will call is anything "dropped off" by an individual at the Ohio State Ticket Office windows for another individual to pick up.

The away game allotments that we receive are usually minimal. We do not typically have an away game sale for the general public. We encourage you to contact the host school for any availability they may have.



- Duplicate tickets may be requested due to the following situations which include but are not limited to: tickets not received in the mail from the Ohio State Ticket Office, tickets which are lost, stolen, washed, destroyed or lost via 3rd party mailing.

- Duplicates may only be requested by the original account holder in person or IN WRITING via e-mail to athletic.tix@osu.edu or by fax to (614) 688-3032. When making the request, the original account holder may give one alternate pick up name if necessary.

- Requests will be accepted starting 4 days prior to the athletic event. Duplicate requests could take up to 48 hours to be filled but a specific pick up time will be given upon the receipt of the duplicate request.

- Duplicate tickets are never mailed. Women's basketball home game duplicates may be picked up at the Ohio State Ticket Office in the Southeast corner of the Schottenstein Center.

- Once the duplicate request is submitted, the bar code on the original ticket will be voided. Once a duplicate request is submitted, the request cannot be revoked at a later time, even if the originals are located.

- If a full season ticket package has not been received in the mail from the OSU Ticket Office four days prior to the first game, we will create duplicate tickets only for the first game on the package. If the full package is still not received by four days prior to the second game, we will accept a duplicate request and create duplicates only for that second game. If the full package is still not received by four days prior to the third game, duplicate tickets will be created for the remaining games in the season ticket package.

- Duplicate tickets cannot be duplicated again.

- If you wish to receive your tickets via email rather than picking them up at will call, you may log into your Ohio State Buckeyes Account online at www.ohiostatebuckeyes.com/tickets (click on "Manage My Ticket Account") and forward your tickets to yourself or someone else. This process will generate new tickets and barcodes for you much like the duplication process that would take place in our office, but will also save you from having to come to our office in person to pick them up as you will receive the new tickets as a PDF document. To select this option, log into your account, click on "Manage Tickets", select the seats for the game you would like to forward, and select the "Forward" option. Follow the on-screen prompts to guide you through the rest of the process. If you have problems with the forwarding process, feel free to contact our office at 1-800-GOBUCKS and a representative will assist you.

How do I exchange my current tickets for accessible seating?
Season ticket holders and single game purchasers should request accessible seating by indicating your specific seating needs when purchasing tickets. Be sure to indicate whether you need seats that do not require climbing many steps or if you require wheelchair accessible seating. If you are in possession of tickets that are not accessible, please bring them to the Guest Services at the Schottenstein Center starting 1 hour prior to tip-off on game day. Guest Services is located outside of section 121 on the main concourse at the Schottenstein Center. All seating is limited; accessible seating is made available on a first come first serve basis and we make every attempt to relocate guests to accessible seating in comparable locations to their original tickets.

Purchasing a ticket from someone outside of the Ohio State Ticket Office
Only tickets purchased directly from the Ohio State Ticket Office can be authenticated at the gate upon entry. We cannot guarantee that any tickets purchased from a third party source are valid or that they will allow you entry into the arena.

If I cannot attend an event, is my ticket refundable?
Unfortunately, all tickets purchased through the OSU Ticket Office are non-refundable and non-exchangeable.

Can I lose my ticket privileges?
Yes, you may lose your ticket privileges if you have engaged in conduct that is determined, by either OSU or the NCAA, to be in violation of any NCAA rule or if, in OSU's reasonable discretion, you have otherwise taken any action that jeopardizes the eligibility of OSU's programs or its student-athletes.
