Regalia and tickets


Faculty members may wear their own or rented regalia. We offer a webform through which you may register to march at Commencement and/or Hooding, order rental regalia, and request a guest ticket.
*May 22: Please note that the webform form is now closed. If you would like to march at Hooding and/or Commencement, please email Kimberly Nelson to see whether arrangements may be made. If you own all pieces of regalia and need simply to advise us of your plans to participate, please include that information in your message.

Regalia pick-up

Regalia may be picked up on Wednesday, June 3 and Thursday, June 4 from 10 am to 4 pm in room 8-119. On Friday, June 5, rented regalia may be picked up in Kresge Lobby at 8:30 am.

Regalia return

Rented regalia may be returned to room 8-119 on June 5 immediately after Commencement until 4 pm and from 10 am to 4 pm on Monday, June 8, 2015.

Questions about registration and regalia may be directed to Kimberly Nelson.


If you are marching in the Commencement procession, you do not need a ticket. Faculty may request ONE guest ticket in advance, but please note that seating is limited in this section. Requests for guest tickets may be sent to A wait list for faculty guest tickets will begin when capacity has been reached.

A note about Commencement guest tickets: tickets available to MIT faculty are intended for use by faculty members or their guests only. Faculty tickets are not to be given to students. This is a matter of both fairness and logistics, as these tickets are separate and apart from the "general seating" area for which degree candidates receive four guest tickets. If you have questions about tickets available to faculty, please email Thank you.
