(KMOV.com) – A lot of people have been wondering if they can see the Presidential debate in person at Washington University.

There are even posting on Craigslist from those looking for tickets. Some advertisements that people posted say they will pay $200 a ticket. But the Commission on Presidential debates say all tickets will be tightly controlled.

The campaign staff gets the tickets first. Then the leftovers will go to Washington University students on the day of the debate, October 9.

About 10,000 students put their names into a lottery to get a ticket for the debate. Special emails went out to 500 students saying they were in the final pool.

In the afternoon on October 9, students will start reporting to Whitaker Hall on campus where they will await final word on whether they will be able to watch the debate in person.

School officials say there could be 100 tickets available, a lot more or a lot less. They say they will not know until the last minute on the day of the debate.
