Tickets are required. Each graduate is allowed to reserve up to 4 tickets. Please do your best to reserve your tickets as soon as possible. You can reserve the tickets for your guests, then you will need to follow the process on how to transfer the tickets to them since they will need the ticket to gain entry to the stadium. Please refer here to the Grad Chronicle No.6 for instructions on how to reserve tickets and/or how to transfer tickets. If you experience problems please contact the ticket office for assistance. Guests who require ADA seating, please send an email to rsvp@uh.edu.

General Information

Please be aware of the clear bag policy. This policy applies to you and to your guests. It is advised that graduates bring limited items as there will be no area/place to store your belongings. Please refer here to the policy. As the university is still enforcing Covid-19 measures, you must wear your mask at all times. You will be instructed by commencement team members when it is permitted to remove your mask for picture purposes only. These measures also apply to your guests. Your guests can bring celebratory items such as posters and flowers. Air horns and signs with poles/sticks will not be permitted. Water will be provided for graduates on the field. The concession stands will be open for your guests where they will be able to purchase light refreshments and drinks. Please be sure to wear comfortable shoes as there will be quite a bit of walking.

The Herff Jones website is live, and students are able to order their regalia sets now. The website is herff.ly/uh. Last day to order online is April 18th.
