Commencement Events on May 19 May Impact Your Check-Out

As you know, this year we are also welcoming back graduates from the classes of 2021 and 2020 on Thursday, May 19. There will be several ceremonies taking place on the South Lawns from 9:00 a.m. through 6:30 p.m. This will require campus and street closures to welcome back thousands of graduates and guests. While this is a unique moment for your fellow students to return to celebrate their accomplishments, campus will be busier than usual during your move out. If your plans allow for any flexibility, we strongly encourage you to depart on Wednesday, May 18.
