Occasionally, student organizations may have the need to sell event tickets or other items (i.e. apparel). The Center for Student Involvement is able to assist organizations with this process, primarily through the UW Marketplace, where the tri-campus system of the University of Washington uses to sell items and materials, our online ticket sale system. Read below for more information based on what you trying to sell.
Event Ticket Sales (including free tickets!)
Through the UW Marketplce, organizations can sell tickets for events - including free tickets that have no cost. The system offers a variety of benefits, including the collection of purchaser information, accepting credit cards, in-person sales via credit card, and more. The UW Marketplace makes it easy for student organizations to sell tickets, as it removes the need for members and officers to sell tickets on their own - which often meant carrying cash and not accepting credit cards.
In order to have a ticket or item sold on UW Marketplace, you must provide particular information to the Center for Student Involvement.
Please complete the form found here: Ticket Information Form
Please submit the Ticket Information Form to Conor Leary (email@example.com) for review
Once the Ticket Information Form is approved, the Ticket Information Form will be forwarded to the UW Marketplace to be added to the website options, under the Center for Student Involvement.
Please make sure to submit the document 3 weeks before your event is set to take place.
In addition to ticket sales, sometimes an RSO will have a need to sell an item or collect money for their organization. Examples include apparel and membership dues. Organizations are welcome to do this on their own time and through their own process, but our Office may also be able to assist. It may be possible to utilize the UW Marketplace, which would allow for credit cards to be accepted. Each request would be discussed on a case-by-case basis to determine the best route of action. If your organization is interested in discussing options with our office, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
