Guest Entry and Seating
Guests will be admitted by ticket only; general seating applies.
All guests for the undergraduate ceremony should enter the TD Garden at North Station Level 1 (cross platform) from Legends Way or Nashua Street and proceed to the escalator to the Level 2 turnstiles.
Specific seating locations are designated within the TD Garden for wheelchair access only. Guests who use wheelchairs are to be accompanied by no more than one escort, and will be directed to these areas by facility personnel. Availability is on a first-come, first-served basis. Wheelchairs are not available at the venue. Persons with mobility issues may use the elevator located in the center of the cross platform to reach Level 2. The graduate procession begins at 9:20 a.m.
Sign-language interpreters will be available at the ceremony. Special seating for visual access to interpreters will be provided in section 21 at the TD Garden. Space is limited, and as such, persons will be admitted to this section with one escort only. Staff will be posted in these areas for your assistance and direction.
Graduates will be seated by college and degree (a graduate seating plan, subject to change, will be noted in the Commencement program).
It is highly recommended that graduates make arrangements with their guests to meet after the ceremony at a specified location away from the immediate vicinity of the TD Garden. Your cooperation in doing so will help to alleviate the congestion resulting from ceremony attendance and expected pedestrian and vehicle traffic within the immediate area.
