Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I pick up my Senior Week tickets?

A: Wristband and graffiti party t-shirt distribution is on Tuesday, May 26 from 12-3pm in the Moskovitz Theater in the fourth floor of the DeNaples Center. This is the only time that you can pick up your bracelet and graffiti party t-shirt. There will be a separate check in time for Senior Formal on Thursday, May 28.

I lost my driver’s license. Can I still attend the events?

A: You must bring some form of government issued photo identification with you to all events where alcohol is served. Bars and bar staff are required to check each person’s ID with no exceptions. This is in accordance with Pennsylvania law.

Will senior events sell out?

A: Historically, we are usually able to accommodate all members of the class for the on-campus Senior Week events. Senior Formal tickets historically sell out every year. Once all senior and guest tickets are sold, waitlists will activate for seniors as well as for guests. If the event is sold out and you/your guest wish(es) to attend, please add your name to the waitlist. Spots on the waitlist will be offer in the order they were signed up for, with priority going to current seniors.

What payment methods are accepted?

A: The following credit and debit cards are accepted via online registration; cash and Royal Card will not be accepted:

  • Visa

  • Mastercard

  • Discover

Do I have to be 21 years old to participate?

A: Yes, since there is alcohol served at Senior Week events, all participants must be 21 years old. If you are not 21 but are graduating and still want to attend Senior Week, you must contact to receive approval to register. There is no change in price for the events. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause for Seniors that will not be 21 at the time for Senior Week.

Can I register for just some of the Senior Week events?

A: No, Senior Week is only available as a package. Participants will receive a Senior Week wristband and will be on the list in order to be admitted to events. The only exception is Senior Formal. Members of the Class of 2020 may register for Senior Formal without attending Senior Week, and vice versa.

Where do I pick up my Senior Formal tickets?

A: Senior Formal check-in will take place on Thursday, May 28 on the first floor of the DeNaples Center from 1:00pm-5:00pm. This is the only time that you and your guest can pick up your Senior Formal wristband (this will be a different wristband than Senior Week).

Can I bring a guest to the Senior Week events?

A: No, Senior Week is for graduating, social seniors only. You MUST be wearing your Senior Week wristband to gain entry to the events. Guests are NOT able to attend events throughout the week, and you cannot purchase tickets for individual events. The one exception to this rule is Senior Formal. Members of the Class of 2020 may register a guest for Senior Formal (space may be limited).

If I cannot make an event, can I get a refund?

A: All sales are final, no refunds.

Will events be canceled if there is bad weather?

A: Events will take place, rain or shine. However, locations are subject to change if bad weather arises, so we appreciate your flexibility and attention to email.

Is there anything required for me to bring to each event?

A: For all events, your Royal Card, government issued photo ID, and Senior Week and/or Senior Formal wristband are required for entrance.
