On Commencement morning, space is extremely limited on Morningside Campus. Seats on campus are reserved for ticket holders and degree candidates only. All faculty and staff reporting to work or participating in the academic procession must show a Columbia ID to enter the campus on University Commencement morning. Information on the best entrances to access Morningside Campus will be communicated later in the spring semester.
We wish we could issue an unlimited amount of tickets but we must first accommodate some guests for all of our graduating students. Staff and faculty who are not participating in the event are strongly encouraged to enjoy the proceedings via our live webcast. Please email the commencement office if you have any questions or special requests.
