Terms & Conditions

The smallprint about your order

Use of the Box Office is subject to the following terms and conditions

  1. In the event of the cancellation of an event by the organiser/promoter (ie a cancellation due to circumstances beyond University of Southampton Students' Union's (SUSU) control), SUSU will only refund the face value of the ticket. This excludes any booking, transaction or delivery fees that may have been paid. SUSU will use best endeavours to contact purchasers either by phone, email or in writing (using the details provided at the time of ordering) and advise them to return the tickets. Please note, however, it is the customer's responsibility to check whether the event is going ahead at the scheduled date, time and venue, and SUSU cannot guarantee that they will inform the customer of any changes to the event date, time or venue.
  2. Once purchased, tickets cannot be transferred, exchanged, refunded or returned unless the event is cancelled, moved to another date, or if details of the event are significantly changed after an order is placed (significant changes being a change of headline act (concerts only), venue or show time).

    If an event is moved from its advertised venue and / or the date is changed, tickets already purchased may remain valid should the customer wish to attend the revised event. If not, SUSU will refund the face value of the tickets upon receipt of the original tickets. SUSU will notify all purchasers by phone, email or in writing (using the details provided at the time of ordering) to advise on the validity of the tickets and the procedure for obtaining a refund. Refund requests will usually be accepted up until 1 week prior to the revised event, or 3 days after notification of the change (whichever is the later) unless otherwise notified. In the event of a change at short notice (within 1 week of the event) SUSU will notify purchasers of the conditions that apply, and offer a refund if these are not agreeable. Please note, however, it is the customer's responsibility to check whether the event is going ahead at the scheduled date, time and venue, and SUSU cannot guarantee that they will inform the customer of any changes to the event date, time or venue.
