Important: Event Logistics & Ticket Information

Event Logistics Overview

Tickets are not required for the University Convocation ceremony which is located on the main quad and will take place Saturday morning, 9 am. However, tickets are required for the Graham Diploma Ceremony which will take place at Gordon Parks Arts Hall on Saturday afternoon, 11:45 am.

Doors of Gordon Parks Arts Hall (GPAH) will open at 11:15 am. Graduates and guests are not permitted into the building before 11:15 am. There will be a separate line for graduates and guests. Seating will be done on a first come first- served basis. There is limited space in the main viewing room which is where graduates will be physically located. After the main hall is filled, guests will be shown to an alternate viewing space in the same building, where guests can view the event via live stream.

Graduate Tickets

Tickets will only be allotted to graduates who are participating in the Diploma Ceremony. Each graduate participant must secure a "Graduate Ticket" for the Spring Diploma Ceremony.

Guest Tickets

Tickets are required to attend the Diploma Ceremony at Gordon Parks Arts Hall. Graduates must acquire tickets on behalf of their guests via this Eventbrite page. Graduates are guaranteed up to four (4) guest tickets. Guests may be asked to sit in the main auditorium OR an overflow space. Guests will have access to the main viewing space where graduates will be physically located until those seats are exhausted. After the main viewing space is filled, guests will be allowed to view streaming footage of the ceremony in the same building, across the hall from the main viewing space.

Requesting Additional Tickets

It is important to us at the Graham School to ensure that each of our graduates has the opportunity to celebrate this academic achievement in the manner that is special to them. If you are interested in acquiring more than four (4) tickets, please follow the following steps:

  1. Register above to claim your graduate ticket. You should also claim the guaranteed four (4) guest tickets at this time.
  2. Visit Additional Ticket Request: Spring 19 and complete the form.

Additional guest tickets are granted on a first-come-first-serve basis until space is exhausted. We will notify you via email, informing you on how many additional guest tickets we can accommodate you. Additional tickets will be distributed electronically, via Eventbrite to your UChicago or personal email address.


Tickets to the Graham School Diploma Ceremony are required for admission for all guests including children three (3) years of age or older. Tickets must be presented upon entry (electronic or printed).
