Thank you for visiting the Commencement website. We hope that these pages answer any questions you have about MIT’s most important annual events, but if not, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the Events and Information Center at 617-253-4795.
We recommend that community members remain alert to the campus changes page for updates about street and 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 every year. 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. Each year, hundreds of staff and students volunteer their time to make this special occasion great for the graduates and their families. Thank you! It makes all the difference.
