U of M faculty and staff are invited to experience online/live stream Northrop Season performances with their students, incorporating the work performed on stage with their classroom curriculum, at no charge. Contact the Campus Engagement Team at to learn more about Northrop Across Campus, to discuss the academic connections, and to help craft meaningful experiences for your students.

Discounts for events outside of the Northrop Season may be offered by the presenter of those events. Visit the Northrop Events Calendar for each event to learn more about pricing and discounts specific to those events.

Rapid Rush is available to University of Minnesota students for selected events that are not included in the Northrop Season. Rapid Rush tickets are $20 (inclusive of fees) and go on sale 30 min before the event's start time. Rapid Rush tickets are based on availability. Because Rapid Rush is only sold on a case-by-case basis, it will be noted on the individual event page and announced on Northrop's social media. Students may get one or two tickets with a valid U Card, depending on the event.
