Seating and Protocol

Seating

To ensure there is adequate seating please arrive ON TIME. Doors open 1 hour prior to each commencement ceremony and seating is on a first-come, first-serve basis.

There will be no tickets issued and no minimum or maximum number of guests per graduate. Guests will be seated on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Audience Courtesy

Bauer College of Business is very proud of the accomplishments of each and every student, so we want the ceremony to be a pleasant experience for everyone. This time-honored ritual includes traditional academic regalia and requires proper decorum. We ask the audience to respect the rights and feelings of other participants and guests by remaining in their seats until all of the graduates have been recognized and the ceremony has concluded. In consideration of the speakers, pagers and cell phones should be turned off or turned to silent mode during the ceremony. Families should not allow children to run up and down the aisles. Babysitting will not be provided.

For Your Safety

Although the University of Houston does not anticipate any security problems during commencement, we will be taking special measures to ensure the safety of everyone who attends the commencement ceremony. Only clear purses or bags will be allowed in the venue. For additional information, please review the clear bag policy.
