Overflow Seating Locations
Three locations will be available in the Park Center for overflow seating. Tickets are not required for these locations and seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis, as seating is still limited in these locations. Copies of the Commencement programs will be available in all locations.
Park Center, Room 2213 (D-305, Rock Climbing Gym) will be set-up with two video screens featuring a live video feed of the ceremony. Room D-305 is located on the upper level of the Park Center near the northwest corner of the building.
Please note that unless there is an emergency, the main access to and from Room 2213 (D-305) will be restricted during the processional and recessional for both ceremonies, as the platform, faculty, staff and students will be traveling through this area. Guests should arrive at this location by 9:15 a.m. and 2:15 p.m. or after 9:45 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. Ushers will be available to assist you in finding alternate routes to this location.

The Hall of Fame room is located on the northeast corner of Park Center, closest to the Tennis Courts and Lusk Field House (reception location).
