Family & Friends

The annual Commencement ceremony is an important milestone in the lives of our students and their families, and WPI works hard to assure that this will be an enjoyable event. That is why we do all we can do to assure the safety and welfare of our guests. Toward that end, our security personnel will be conducting random checks of camera bags, backpacks, and other large items on Commencement day. We appreciate your understanding as we undertake this security measure, which we believe will help make May 15 and May 16 a pleasant and memorable day for all.  

Information for Family & Visitors:

Please note:

There are no limits on the number of guests that may observe the ceremony. We will have 7000 chairs on the Quad to accomodate our guests on this special day.
