The Ent Center for the Arts is a fun, dynamic, and extraordinary arts facility. Best of all, it belongs to you!
Arts Pass makes it possible for you to use your UCCS Lion OneCard to get free or discounted tickets to amazing arts experiences on campus. Discounted tickets are based on availability. This program is open to all UCCS students and includes performances, concerts, exhibitions, and more from the professional arts programs of UCCS Presents.
Why? Because more and more research is showing the positive impacts of the arts on education. The findings are significant: exposure to the arts is linked with better critical thinking skills, greater social tolerance, and better workforce opportunities.
