General Information

The Caltech Ticket Office is the box office for Caltech's Beckman Auditorium, Ramo Auditorium, and Dabney Lounge.

Ticket Office hours are 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Saturday hours vary; call for details.

Tickets for Caltech events may be purchased:

On the day of an event, the Event Box Office will be open for sales beginning two hours before the event.

  • If the event is in Beckman Auditorium, we are located on the WEST side of the building.
  • If the event is in Ramo Auditorium, we will have temporary signs leading you to the box office.
  • If the event is in Beckman Institute Auditorium, we have a table set up under the archways, on the west end of the "Gene Pool." (Note: Tickets for Pasadena Folk Music Society shows generally go on sale one hour before the show.)

Please note: The Event Box Office is in a different location than the Ticket Office. If you have questions on the day of an event, please proceed directly to the Event Box Office and we will help you there.
