Arts, Sciences, and Engineering Graduate Student Commencement


Our usual venue of 3M Arena at Mariucci will be closed for extensive renovations during the 2023 commencement season. 

With this, we will be celebrating commencement with several other University of Minnesota colleges during a large, outdoor ceremony at Huntington Bank Stadium. Ceremonies in this format are common at several of our peer Big10 institutions. There are many details to work out between now and May, but our goal remains unchanged – to create a meaningful and memorable event with all of the pomp and circumstance that our graduating students deserve. The graduate ceremony will be held:

Master's and Doctoral Degree Student Commencement 
Friday, May 12, 2023
5:00 P.M.
Huntington Bank Stadium

We invite feedback and questions regarding the change of venue via this form. 

We will share more information about the ceremony as decisions are made over the coming months and we are looking forward to celebrating the accomplishments of our graduating students with you on a beautiful May weekend.
