Grad Ball 2017 tickets go on sale at 7pm on Tuesday 2nd May - here's some tips to help make the buying process go as smoothly as possible for you...
How do I purchase my GradBall ticket?
Simply log in to the Guild of Students website via the my.bham portal and then click the Grad Ball button on our home page - or the handy link at the bottom of this article!
You must log in through my.bham to buy your ticket. We recommend trying this out before tickets go on sale so you can check your username and password are working properly.
REMEMBER: YOUR TICKET WILL ONLY BE HELD FOR 15 MINUTES IN YOUR SHOPPING BASKET BEFORE BEING RELEASED AGAIN FOR SALE. MAKE SURE YOU CHECK OUT QUICKLY!
How do I log in via my.bham?
It’s really simple!
- Head here and use your University details to log in
- Select the Guild of Students icon from your “Top Picks”
- You’ll automatically be redirected to the Guild website!
I’m having problems paying – what should I do?
First, make sure you're typing in the correct card details - it's easy to forget whether the bank has your home or term-time address. Make sure you enter the address you registered your card to, and not just where you happen to be living now! The most common problem we had last year was people being told they had "insufficient authorisation" because their address details didn’t match those held by their bank. Check and double check what you're inputting!
If that doesn't solve the problem, send us an email to email@example.com and we'll do our best to help you out. You'll make it easy for us to help you if you include your full name, student number AND a screenshot of your problem!
When can you help me with a problem?
Remember, although we can check email and social media during office hours, we have homes to go! Please bear with us and don’t expect an immediate response if, for example, it’s 2am in the morning.
We will be able to provide support on Tuesday 2nd May until 9pm, and then 9am -5pm for the rest of the week.

Yes, but only as guests of UOB students. If you’d like to bring a guest, you’ll need to ensure they have proof-of-age I.D. (over 18s only!) and that you accompany them throughout the night.
I’ve got a Priority Pass – when can I buy my tickets?
If you bagged yourself a Priority Pass during our Final Year Freebies competition, then you can buy your Graball tickets early.
Priority Pass tickets will be on sale from 12pm – 11pm on Thursday 27th April from the Guild of Students website. Tickets are limited to 1 per pass holder.
