Tickets, Location & Weather

When Commencement is outdoors on the Main Quadrangle, seating is unlimited and no tickets are required. If severe weather forces Commencement indoors, the event will be held in LeFrak Gymnasium, where seating is limited to ticket holders.

Each graduating senior may pick up three tickets for family or other guests, beginning Friday at 1:00 at Commencement Headquarters in Alumni House.

Guests without tickets may watch a video simulcast of the event in Coolidge Cage, next to LeFrak.

Commencement will be outdoors in all but the most inclement weather. Please plan ahead by bringing rain gear and an umbrella.
