Vanderbilt Faculty/Staff Discounted Tickets, Payroll Deduction and Taxable Benefits
Sign-up now for Vanderbilt’s Faculty-Staff payroll deduction program, by clicking on the downloadable form here. If you are a Vanderbilt University full-time employee, just fill out the form, be sure to include your Vanderbilt employee ID number, sign it and bring the completed form to the Athletic Ticket Office at 2601 Jess Neely Drive, Nashville, TN 37212. All tickets are based on availability, so employees that had tickets from a previous year will have priority for renewals.
Payroll deduction will begin coming out of your check as soon as the ticket order is processed and will be paid in up to three (3) monthly payments. Payroll deduction for any eligible sport must be paid in full by the end of the first month that the eligible Vanderbilt team starts play. (Ex: your payroll deducted football tickets must be paid in full by September 30). Only tickets can be payroll deducted. Vanderbilt is pleased to offer all full-time faculty/staff discounted tickets.
Additionally, the difference of the full-priced season ticket and the Vanderbilt full-time employee rate season ticket is considered a taxable benefit by the Internal Revenue Code. This difference will be recorded as income and will be displayed on your paycheck receipt under taxable income. This may result in a slight reduction in income for the pay period designated for the withholding. Please call the benefits office to see how this may affect your paycheck as each person is different.
If you do have questions, please call the ticket office at (615) 322-GOLD (4653) for questions. You must have your Vanderbilt employee ID number when ordering (check the top of your check stub to find it).
Note: The Vanderbilt Ticket Office does not receive any orders via fax. Please either call the ticket office at (615) 322-GOLD (4653), visit us online at vucommodores.com or just stop by and see us. Vanderbilt full-time faculty and staff members who are ordering tickets for the first time will need to come to the ticket office in person to show their Vanderbilt ID badges or to drop off Payroll Deduction forms.
Football, men’s basketball, women’s basketball, and baseball season tickets (outfield) are offered to full-time Faculty and Staff personnel at a reduced rate.
Faculty and Staff is defined as those individuals whose personnel records, pay and taxable income withholdings are maintained and performed by Vanderbilt University. Individuals employed by other agencies with association to Vanderbilt University are considered employees of that agency and not Vanderbilt University.
The difference of the full-priced season ticket and the reduced rate season ticket is considered a taxable benefit by the Internal Revenue Code. This difference will be recorded as income and will be displayed on your paycheck receipt under taxable income. This may cause a slight reduction in your income for the pay period designated for the withholding.
A limited number of seats are available at the Faculty and Staff rate. Priority is given to those Faculty and Staff members who contribute to the National Commodore Club and to those that purchased season tickets for the previous season.
Any questions regarding the purchase of Faculty and Staff season tickets can be answered by calling the Athletic Ticket Office at 2-GOLD.
