Disability Accommodations

Assisted listening devices are available at LaVell Edwards Stadium at the Stadium Management Office, just inside Gate 3. Guests will be asked to leave a valid driver’s license as collateral in exchange for the device.


Seating accommodations for guests in wheelchairs or with other physical disabilities are available at LaVell Edwards Stadium. At LaVell Edwards Stadium, wheelchair seating is located on the upper and lower concourses of the West Stands and on the lower concourse of the East Stands.

For ticketed events, wheelchair section seat tickets are required. With each wheelchair-accessible ticket, if available up to three companion tickets are also available for purchase. Typically only one companion seat is guaranteed in the wheelchair section, but we will do our best to seat the other tickets in nearby rows. If you have already purchased your tickets and are concerned they will not meet your accommodation needs, please contact the BYU Ticket Office as early as possible before the event. 801-422-2981

For patrons who are not confined to wheelchairs but who have difficulty navigating extreme numbers of stairs, limited mobility seats are available for purchase at all ticketed events, if still available. The same purchasing policy for wheelchair seat tickets applies to limited mobility seats.

For free, general admission events, seats in the wheelchair section are first-come, first-served. Each guest is allowed up to three companions to accompany him or her in these areas or in designated rows surrounding each wheelchair section. We recommend coming at least one hour early to these events.

For away games and bowl games, disability-accessible tickets are available upon request. Please inform ticket office personnel of any necessary accommodations.


Requests for sign language interpretation must be placed at least one week prior to the event. BYU students who need interpreters should contact the University Accessibility Center at 801-422-2767. All other patrons should direct requests to the Marriott Center Special Events Office at 801-422-6022.


Wheelchair Checks

If you are able to sit in a regular seat, but require a wheelchair for transportation, please leave your wheelchair at one of the stroller checks by Gates 3 or 10 or at the wheelchair checks under the North and South Stands. Please ask an usher for assistance if necessary.

Wheelchairs for Transport

Although there are no wheelchairs available to rent at Edwards Stadium, a limited number are available to borrow to transport guests to their seats. These wheelchairs are available in the Stadium Management Office, just inside Gate 3 on the west side of the stadium. To ensure the wheelchairs are returned, please bring a driver’s license to leave as collateral.


Other Policies & Info

For BYU Football games, complimentary earplugs are available by asking an usher.


If you must contact a guest during an event due to an emergency, please call the Stadium Management Office at 801-422-6022. Ushers and University Police officers will do their best to locate them quickly inside the venue.


Lost and Found articles should be reported or turned in to the Stadium Management Office or to an usher. Any articles not claimed after the event will be sent from the Stadium Management Office to University Central Lost and Found in Room 118 WSC. This office can be reached at 801-422-3024.

Reselling tickets: The purchase of BYU season tickets for the primary purpose of reselling most or all of the tickets on the secondary market is prohibited. In the event that BYU identifies a purchaser as having bought season tickets for the primary purpose of resale (e.g., based on a significant reselling history), BYU may, in its sole discretion, cancel and refund some or all of the tickets to the purchaser.

Season or single-game ticket holders who wish to resell tickets for individual games are encouraged do so securely via their BYUtickets.com account. BYU will not be responsible for any tickets purchased through any other third-party individual, site, or service. Scalping tickets is not permitted on BYU property.

Re-entry: Guests must have their ticket or ROC pass “exit scanned” upon leaving the venue to be eligible to re-enter. Exit scanning is available at all gates. If you are exiting the venue but plan on returning, please notify the closest ticket taker. The ticket taker will “exit scan” the ticket or ROC pass. Upon re-entry, the previously “exit scanned” ticket or ROC pass must be presented to the ticket taker to be re-scanned to allow re-entry.

All tickets are non-transferrable. Once a ticket is scanned, it may not be used by another guest to enter the venue, even if the original guest is leaving

All guests two and older require a ticket. (See “Children.”)

For any ticketing questions or concerns, contact the BYU Ticket Office.

Brigham Young University seeks to create a safe and comfortable experience at all events held on campus. As a part of that experience we expect that guests will:

  • Respect and appreciate each other.
  • Treat all individuals in a professional and courteous manner.
  • Refrain from disruptive or unruly behavior, including foul or abusive language and obscene gestures.
  • Never display signs with symbols, images, or language that are in poor taste, profane, discriminatory, or for commercial purposes, electioneering, campaigning or advocating for or against any candidate, political party, legislative issue, or government action.
  • Never use language or make gestures that are threatening, abusive, or discriminatory, including on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, gender identity, ability, and/or sexual orientation.
  • Sit only in their ticketed seat and show their tickets when requested.
  • Never engage in fighting, throwing objects, or attempting to enter any restricted area, including the playing or performance area.
  • Comply with requests from venue staff regarding venue operations and emergency response.

The event staff has been trained to intervene when necessary and help ensure that the above expectations are met. Guests are encouraged to report any inappropriate behavior to the nearest usher, security guard, or by texting the keyword BYU with the concern and their location to 69050.

Guests who choose not to adhere to this code of conduct are subject to penalty including, but not limited to, ejection without refund, revocation of season tickets, and prevention from attending future events. They may also be in violation of local ordinances resulting in possible arrest or prosecution.

BYU thanks you for adhering to these provisions.


Shirts are required. Clothing displaying unsportsmanlike, obscene or profane comments is not permitted.

Obscene gestures, vulgar language, or unsafe behavior, such as body surfing, tossing a person in the air, holding a person above the head, etc. are unacceptable and may result in ejection.


During football games, guests may report security or guest services concerns (e.g. disruptive behavior, smoking, drink spills, broken seats, etc.) by texting the keyword BYU, followed by their location and issue to 69050. Stadium management will follow up immediately on any valid requests (e.g. BYU spilled soda section 6 row 3 seat 11). Standard text messaging rates apply.
