Purdue Fort Wayne shifts on-campus box office operations

Tickets for non-sporting events including lectures such as the Omnibus Speaker Series, music, theatre, and other entertainment are available on campus at the Schatzlein Box Office in the Rhinehart Music Center.

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (ADAMS) – The two primary on-campus box offices at Purdue University Fort Wayne are updating and simplifying ticket-buying procedures for patrons who prefer to get theirs in person and in advance of the day of the event.

Representatives with PFW released the following:

Effective immediately, the Larson Ticket Office, located in the lobby of Gates Sports Center, will only handle tickets for Mastodon Athletics. Ticket purchases for lectures, music, theatre, and other entertainment events made on campus before the day of the show must be processed at the Schatzlein Box Office, located in the lobby of Rhinehart Music Center.

Previously, tickets for various activities, including the popular Omnibus Speaker Series, were available in advance at Gates. Omnibus tickets, and other non-sporting events, will now only be available for on-campus pickup before the day of the event at Rhinehart. Patrons are encouraged to plan ahead to adjust to these changes.

Tickets for Mastodon Athletics are available on campus at the Larson Ticket Office in the Gates Sports Center.

All on-campus box offices are open one hour before performances held in each venue. That list includes Williams Theatre, located adjacent to the Visual Arts Building, and the Studio Theatre at Kettler Hall.

Tickets may also be purchased online by visiting pfw.edu/tickets for non-sporting events and gomastodons.com/tickets for Mastodon Athletics.

Box office information for Purdue Fort Wayne’s on-campus venues has been updated for the 2021-22 academic year.
