Audience Policies 

LSU Campus Life events and initiatives are funded primarily by student fee dollars of LSU undergraduate and graduate students from the main campus, including students of the LSU Paul M. Hebert Law School students and School of Veterinary Medicine. Campus Life places a priority for its programs and services toward these students.

As a part of the educational mission of LSU, many Campus Life events are open to the general public, including LSU faculty, staff, alumni, and guests.

For risk management and liability purposes, general public members, family members or dependents of LSU students may be restricted from participating in some Campus Life events, including service projects and travel. 

Campus Life and its student leaders offer programs for a wide variety of audiences and audience tastes in the LSU community.

In open-air settings, Campus Life enforces guidelines ensuring that content adheres to a 'PG-13 or equivalent' standard for visuals and maintains 'radio-friendly' lyrics.

For events with content exceeding these ratings, Campus Life will host the event inside a facility and post information about audience restrictions or content warnings at the entrance.

Campus Life reserves the right to deny entry to persons under 17 years of age or younger to films with an “R,” “NC-17” or “X” rating, with an exception for currently enrolled LSU students. 

Campus Life enforces an alcohol and drug free environment at its events and during any LSU-sponsored travel. Should the event environment be disrupted by alcohol or drug use, an LSU Police officer or university official will address the concern. 

LSU students, faculty and staff should present their Tiger Card LSU ID when asked for event entry or for verification of student or employment status. Students, Faculty, and Staff without their Tiger Card may not be admitted to events.

Members of the public and guests of current LSU students should present a valid state or Federal-issued ID at event entry.  

Most Campus Life events are free for LSU students on the main campus. If an admission fee applies, students receive the highest discount.

As audience size and capacity may be limited in some venues and with some event registrations, Campus Life may prioritize the registration in the following manner. Campus Life reserves the right to restrict the number of tickets available per individual to any priority level.

  • Priority 1 - LSU Undergraduate, Graduate, LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center, and LSU School of Veterinary Medicine Students (LSU Students)
  • Priority 2 - LSU Undergraduate, Graduate, Law Center, and School Veterinary Medicine Faculty and Staff (LSU Faculty and Staff)
  • Priority 3 - General Public, including Family Members of LSU Students, Faculty and Staff



Minors under the age of 18 years should be accompanied by an adult or chaperone, unless that person is an LSU student. LSU students below the age of 18 years at the time of an event may need parent/guardian signed waivers to participate in Campus Life service, travel, and other activities with risk and liability concerns. Check event registration materials for specific instructions. 

Campus Life strives to accommodate audience members with disabilities or medical conditions. Those requiring accommodation should contact the Campus Life office at least 7 days prior to the event. Requests made at an event or less than seven days before an event may not be able to be facilitated. Request accommodations
