Beginning this fall, the entire lower level student area and a majority of the upper level student area will be converted to general admission, first-come, first-serve seating.
In essence, instead of basing seating priority on preseason sales, UK will allow students to determine their seat on the day of the game. The earlier students arrive at Commonwealth Stadium, the better chance they'll have at getting the best seats.
The change in student seating will mirror most major Southeastern Conference schools.
Even though seating arrangements will be determined on a game-to-game basis, students are encouraged to purchase their tickets starting July 18. Tickets will be on sale from then until the ticket allotment has been sold out.
On game day, students with general admission tickets will be able to choose between lower level and upper level seats. Students entering the lower level (sections 104-107) will be provided with a wristband. Once all wristbands have been distributed and the lower level is full, students will automatically be directed to the upper level student sections.
A limited number of reserved seats will be held for students who do not wish to participate in the general admission seating areas. Those reserved seats will be located in the far corner of the upper level student area (section 200) or other corners of the stadium, based on demand.
An online group seating process will occur in early August for students who wish to purchase a reserved seat. Season ticket pickup will begin Aug. 22.
