The ceremony is being held in Zurcher Auditorium in the Merillat Centre for the Arts. Plan to arrive 30 minutes prior to the ceremony to be seated before the ceremony begins. HU staff will assist with seating to provide proper social distancing.

    • Guest seating will be socially distanced and in clusters of three.
    • Your guests are expected to sit together.
    • Guests may be required to climb some stairs.
  • We will read the names of all graduates — those in attendance and those in absentia.
  • The ceremony will be livestreamed so that family members and friends who are unable to attend can participate virtually.
  • A professional photographer will be on hand to take photos of each graduate.
  • Graduates will walk across the stage at the time their name is read to be greeted by University officials.
  • For your safety, University officials will wear masks and facilities will be cleaned between each service.

What to bring:

  • Your cap, gown, and tassel (or hood for master’s or doctoral degrees).
  • Face masks for you and your guests to wear during the ceremony (You may choose to wear your mask or not when walking across the stage.)

If you have an August graduation date, you will pick up your diploma at the ceremony. If you were a May graduate, you may bring your diploma or diploma cover to hold for photographs.

REMINDER: You and your guests will be required to wear masks. Please note that you and your guests will be required to climb some stairs to be seated.
