ATTENDING A MEN’S BASKETBALL GAME

Any graduate or professional student with a valid Duke ID or any individual in possession of a valid Spouse ID may attend a Duke Men's Basketball game, space permitting.

Each student wishing to attend a Men's Basketball game must first obtain a wristband at the Bostock Gate ticket office at the north entrance to Wallace Wade (opposite the graduate and professional student entrance to Cameron Indoor Stadium). Here, ushers will distribute wristbands for students wishing to enter the walk-up line (for individuals with only their Duke ID); the bench-side line (for individuals with a season ticket and their ID, wishing to stand in Section 20 proximal to the Duke bench); and the band-side line (for individuals with a season ticket and their ID, wishing to stand in Section 18 next to the Duke band). 

As you approach the ticket office and join the appropriate queue, please be sure to have your ID and, if you have one, your ticket out and ready to be checked. Once you receive your wristband, you will then be directed to the back of the designated line (i.e., bench, band, or walk-up).

Student doors to Cameron will open 90 minutes prior to tip-off (subject to change). At this point, students in the bench- and band-side lines will be directed to the security checkpoint at the graduate and professional student entrance to Cameron Indoor Stadium at the discretion of the Head Ushers in collaboration with Duke Athletics staff and the Fire Marshall.

At 30 minutes prior to tip-off (subject to change as communicated in advance by the Head Ushers), season ticket holders will no longer be guaranteed admission and students in the walk-up line will begin the process of entering Cameron as above for the bench- and band-side lines, space permitting. Season ticket holders arriving after this time will be given a walk-up line wristband and directed to the back of the walk-up line.

All graduate and professional students must enter through the graduate and professional student entrance with a wristband. Students who enter through the undergraduate or general admission doors without a wristband will be sent to Bostock Gate to get a wristband and, if in possession of a ticket, may no longer be guaranteed admission to the game. Students will not be allowed through the graduate and professional student entrance without a wristband.  

Once inside Cameron, students are welcome to purchase concessions and to visit the restroom, but must always return to their section. At tip-off, doors will close and the cheering will start!
