Box Office

Advance on-line tickets are required for some, but not all, of the events at the Tsai Center. We have many events and programs that are free and open to the public. Please reference the event listing to find out where to purchase tickets on-line or use one of the quick links below.

“This event is free and open to the public”: This means no tickets are required unless very specifically stated to register or reserve a free ticket.  All seating will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.  BU College of Fine Arts concerts are all free, open to the public, and do not require tickets.

Window ticket sales is generally only available in the 1-2 hours prior to an event, as advance tickets are sold on-line. We accept cash, American Express, MasterCard, Visa, & Discover. All sales are final. We have a no-refund, no-exchange ticket policy.
