Guest Tickets For Commencement Events

The University is providing each graduate up to four guest tickets for the Commencement Mass and University Commencement Ceremony, to be held in Notre Dame Stadium on Sunday, May 23, as well as for the college and school diploma and hooding ceremonies to be held over Commencement weekend. Information on how to reserve the four guest tickets per graduate was sent to students in mid-April. More information is available here.

COVID Vaccination, University Health and Safety protocols, and Updates 

In partnership with state and local health officials, the University has instituted public health protocols to keep the campus community and local communities as safe as possible. We strongly encourage all graduates and guests to be fully vaccinated prior to Commencement weekend.

Please note that all of the University’s health and safety protocols will be in effect for Commencement weekend, including masking requirements indoors and outdoors on campus and physical distancing. The University reserves the right to remove from campus any guest who does not comply with these protocols.
