Gonzaga University is a private Jesuit institution with 7,400 students in Spokane, Washington. From club events to games played by its renowned men’s and women’s basketball teams, there is always something happening on campus. However, until eight years ago there was no secure, hosted environment where students, staff and visitors could purchase tickets to these events with a credit or debit card.

Founded in 1940, the private, Catholic, coed liberal arts institution has grown into one of the educational leaders in South Florida, with 2,747 full-time undergraduates and 3,748 graduate students.
