Greetings!

Thank you for visiting the Commencement website. We hope that these pages answer any questions you have about MIT's most important annual event, but if not, please email commencement@mit.edu, or call the Events and Information Center at 617-253-4795.

We recommend that community members check the campus changes page late in May for updates about parking garage closures or building access issues during Commencement week.

We would never be able to pull off a beautiful Commencement without the help of the MIT community. We have opportunities for volunteers at both the Hooding Ceremony and Commencement. Potential volunteers should note that the MIT senior administration supports and encourages staff participation in Commencement and your supervisor can answer payroll-related questions about volunteering for either event. Each year, hundreds of staff and students volunteer their time to make the day great for the graduates and their families. Thank you! It makes all the difference.
