There is a process for requesting extra tickets which is explained in our FAQ and will be explained in the ticketing email.

We understand that you may need more seats and if available, we will do our best to issue them. We do not guarantee extra seats - please read the FAQ for the details.

If you are traveling from afar, please plan accordingly. Every student is able to order up to four (4) seats.
