University Commencement 2024

Thursday, May 2, 2024 at 6:00 p.m. MDT

Join the University of Utah to celebrate its graduates at the University Commencement ceremony on Thursday, May 2 at 6:00 p.m. MDT at the Jon M. Huntsman Center. This in-person gathering honors graduating students from our colleges and schools across campus together during this university-wide event.

The University Commencement ceremony broadly honors the Class of 2024 as a whole. Graduates and attendees can anticipate words of congratulations from university administrators and students leaders; hear keynotes from the Commencement Speakers; applaud honorary degree recipients; receive a welcome from the Office of Alumni Relations; and wrap up the event by singing the University of Utah fight song in unison one last time as a student. All graduates are encouraged to participate in the University Commencement ceremony as the University of Utah commends this milestone achievement in students’ lives.

The University Commencement ceremony is a non-ticketed event and seating is first come, first served. It is suggested that guests be seated by 5:45 p.m. as the processional will begin at 6:00 p.m. and the program will follow at approximately 6:30 p.m. As you plan to attend University Commencement, please review the parking/transportation information and visit the Frequently Asked Questions webpage.
