UC is Smoke-Free
Since 2014, all University of California campuses are tobacco and smoke-free. Smoking, the use of smokeless tobacco products, e-cigarettes, and unregulated nicotine products are strictly prohibited. The change was made to ensure the health and well-being of everyone on campus. For more information, visit tobaccofree.ucsc.edu
Advice for Your Device
During all performances and formal lectures, please do not:
- use cell phones
- take photos or video
- make any audio recordings
If you wish to record or photograph a formal performance or presentation of the Arts Division, please get written permission from the venue manager in advance.
Service Animals & Support Animals
Service animals: UC Santa Cruz welcomes working service animals that are necessary to assist patrons with disabilities. Trained service animals need to be well behaved and must remain on a leash or harness at all times. Please contact the event's producer or venue manager if you intend to bring a service animal to an event so that appropriate seating can be reserved for you. Contact Arts Division Events Office: 831-459-2787.
Individuals with disabilities, including visitors, who utilize service animals on campus grounds, are encouraged to register their animal with Santa Cruz County Animal Services. Additionally, students are strongly encouraged to affiliate with the Disability Resource Center. Staff and faculty must contact the Disability Management Coordinator in the Staff Human Resources Benefits Office. Service animal partners must take responsibility for meeting legal requirements, ensuring that animals are under their control, and adhering to cleanup rules.
Support animals are animals that individuals with disabilities utilize for emotional support, well-being, or comfort. Because they are not individually trained to perform work or tasks, support animals are not service animals. Please be mindful of others (including those who may be wary of dogs, including children) if you decide to bring a support animal to a public event.

Late Admission & Seating
Patrons arriving after the doors close will be admitted to the event at an appropriate pause designated by the producer or the house manager. Please note that some events do not offer late seating. Please confirm in advance.
Please allow 20-30 minutes to park, purchase a parking permit, find a parking place, make your way to the venue, and be admitted and seated. (If you arrive at the venue shortly before curtain, we cannot guarantee that you will see the first portion of the program.)
Young Audience Members
Many theatrical presentations include adult language, mature themes, or content, as well as special effects including sudden loud noises (such as realistic theatrical gunfire). As such, most of our theatrical presentations are NOT SUITABLE for children, toddlers, and infants. We strongly encourage visitors to exercise discretion when considering whether to bring a child to any performance.
Please check our schedule for periodic programs that are especially tailored to young people and families.
Each child must have a ticket for an individual seat.
Food & Beverages
With the exception of water in non-breakable containers, food and beverages are not permitted inside our indoor venues. Please enjoy food in the lobby or outdoors. Thank you.
