It’s Basketball Time in Tennessee!

With the Vol basketball season in full swing, we could all use a reminder on how to request tickets from Big Orange Tix. Unlike football tickets, admission to every basketball game in Thompson-Boling is free to all students at UT.

How does it work?

  • First, go to the ticket portal site.
  • If you’ve never logged in to Big Orange Tix, log in with your net id as the username and “guest” as the password. Afterward, you are able to change the password to create a personal account.
  • Find the game you want to attend and reserve the ticket.
  • You’re all set!

Student seating for basketball is not assigned, so be sure to arrive early to claim your spot! Don’t forget to download your ticket to your phone or print it out before coming to the game.

Apply for Smokey’s Sofa

Students will be selected for Smokey’s Sofa based on the following:

  • Campus leadership and involvement
  • Academic success
  • Promotion of civility and inclusion
  • Representation of the Volunteer Creed
  • Attendance at UT athletics events (t-credits)
