Q: I am a student, but not at the University of Toronto. Does the ‘Free Admission’ for Symposium apply to me?
A: Yes! The Symposium is FREE to all students (with valid student ID), no matter which university, college, or school you are from (even if from outside of Canada). To reserve your seat, however, make sure you get your tickets in advance.
Q: How can I obtain tickets?
A: STUDENT tickets can be obtained via eventbrite:
Simply fill in the short registration form, after which you will receive a confirmation email. With this registration, a seat will be reserved for you. Print the confirmation email and bring it with you to the event, but don’t forget your student ID! Each student must register separately.

Q: Can I purchase tickets at the door?
A: Yes, however, the price will be higher (for pulic), and there is no guarantee that there will be seats available at that time. We anticipate that this will be a popular event, so to avoid disappointment obtain your tickets early.
Q: How does seating work?
A: Student and Public tickets are “General Admission”, which means there is no assigned seating. Seating is available on a first come first served basis, so make sure you arrive at the event early (doors open at 6pm).
