Ticket refunds & transfers

Event waitlists

Event waitlists

Waitlist for paid ticketed events: If you were unable to secure a ticket for a paid event, add your name to the waitlist on the CampusGroups event. We will be reaching out on a first-come, first-served basis. If we reach out, you have 24 hours to respond before forfeiting your offer. This also informs us on interest for events where there is potential to secure additional tickets.

Waitlist for free events: All free events on CampusGroups offer a waitlist slot. For most events, we encourage folks on the waitlist to attend day-of as there are often no-shows. If there are no-shows, we can offer space to join. If spaces open up before the event, we will take folks off the waitlist on a first-come, first-served basis. You do not need to complete the waitlist form above. If you have a ticket for a free event and no longer are able to join, please remove yourself from the list so we can best accommodate your peers.

Alcohol & Other Drugs

Senior Days offers a few events with alcohol. The legal drinking age is 21 and valid government-issued photo IDs are required to present at all events. If you drink alcohol, plan ahead for safety and follow these tips.

Cornell’s Student Code of Conduct applies every day of the year, including during Senior Days. If you see someone who requires medical attention due to an alcohol or drug-related emergency, do the right thing and call 9-1-1.

The Good Samaritan protocol/law helps protect you (and the person needing assistance) from judicial / legal consequences if you call for help.
