Ticket Holder Guidelines

In light of the recent Covid-19 pandemic we have incorporated additional Health and Safety measures in University Concert Hall to ensure you, our customer, and all of our staff, promoters and artists are safe. The following measures have been put in place to allow for the safe re-opening of UCH.


  • Social distancing measures have been introduced throughout the venue including in the auditorium. Please note, if multiple tickets are booked at one time, under one name, this will be regarded as a “Household” booking and these will be seated together
  • Please arrive 30 minutes before the show is due to start. This gives the Front of House team adequate time to seat everyone safely
  • Please note that The Bar and Cafe Allegro are both currently closed
  • It may be necessary to issue you with a new seat number before the event in order to adhere to social distancing guidelines. You will be contacted to advise of any changes at least 24hrs before the event. Free seating will not be permitted for any event
  • We are no longer offering a ticket collection service from the Box Office. Therefore, please ensure that you have
    • A. printed your ticket at home or
    • B. Downloaded your e-ticket to your phone before coming to the venue.

  • Your contact details will be kept safely on file should they be needed for the purpose of contact tracing that may be required by the HSE


  • A one-way Visitor Traffic system has been introduced to avoid bottlenecks. Please follow directional signage and instructions from staff
  • Enhanced cleaning measures are being carried out regularly with particular focus on common touch points e.g. door handles, taps, hand rails etc.
