Loyalty Points

The continued growth in number of Boston University season ticket holders, the Agganis Arena Premium Ticket program, and philanthropic support of BU Athletics has greatly increased the demand for tickets. The Agganis Arena Ticket Office and BU Athletics rely on the Loyalty Point System to fairly accommodate ticket requests and determine seat locations.


All ticket requests must be submitted to the ticket office in accordance with standard procedures and deadlines as designated by the Agganis Arena Ticket Office. Loyalty Points are calculated five times a year according to the following deadlines:

  • 9/30 Away-game ticket requests
  • 10/31 Beanpot ticket requests
  • 12/31 End-of-Calendar-Year update
  • 3/1 Postseason ticket requests
  • 6/30 Season ticket renewals/upgrades

Program Details

* Financial Support includes all gifts to BU Athletics – including, but not limited to, support for the Friends of BU Hockey, premium tickets (the tax-deductible gift portion), Agganis Arena, Student Village, athletic scholarships, and all varsity and club team specific funds. Dollar totals do not include contributions made by corporate matching-gift foundations.

^ Points for Consecutive Years of Giving are calculated based on the University’s fiscal year (July 1 – June 30). In order to accrue points in this category, individuals must make a gift to BU Athletics each year prior to June 30. If a gift is not received by June 30, points in this category will reset to 0.

** A planned gift is one that is structured as a component of your estate and/or financial plan. A planned gift oftentimes allows donors to maximize impact of their support without sacrifice to themselves or their families. Examples of planned gifts include bequests, gifts that can provide a lifetime income stream to the donor or others, and retirement asset beneficiary designations. To notify BU that you have included BU in your estate plans, or if you would like to speak with a planned giving professional about maximizing your impact, please call for free and confidential consultations at 800-645-2347.
