Guest Information


Welcome families, friends and guests!

We know this is an exciting time for you and your graduate of the University of South Florida. To help you prepare for your ceremony experience, please review the following information.

Ceremonies are held at the Yuengling Center on the Tampa campus. Doors open 60 minutes prior to the start of each ceremony; please remain in your vehicle and do not congregate outside the building until doors are open. Seating is first come, first served and no tickets are required. Seat saving is not allowed.

Commencement is a most dignified event, fitting for the accomplishment your student has achieved. Please refrain from bringing any noisemakers, balloons, large signs or other items that would impact the ceremony experience for other families, friends and guests.

There is no pre-assigned seating for guests with disabilities as our venue has ample accommodations available. Wheelchair seating is available and these spaces are given on a first come, first served basis. Please be aware that the Yuengling Center does not have wheelchairs or other equipment to loan or rent.

Deaf or hard of hearing guests may sit in section 113, close to the stage, as interpreters will be provided near this location.
