Title: Commencement 2024: Campus Information and Impacts

Dear Faculty and Staff Colleagues,

We are excited to gather thousands of graduating students, families and visitors to the Hilltop Campus to celebrate the Class of 2024 Commencement (May 16 – 19)

We encourage you to:

  • Review the 2024 Commencement Schedule: Learn more about Commencement 2024 on the main website and view the full Commencement Schedule.
  • Congratulate the Class of 2024: Offer your congratulations to our graduates and learn more about the accomplishments that you helped support on the Class of 2024 website.
  • Prepare for commuting, parking and transportation impacts: We ask colleagues who work on the Hilltop Campus to please avoid parking on or near campus on Thursday, May 16, through Sunday, May 19, to accommodate the significant number of guests who will be attending. There are a number of GUTS, public transportation, and more sustainable alternatives to driving available for commuting to campus, such as biking. Friday, May 17, is Bike to Work Day across the country. In addition, please note:
    • The bus turnaround will be closed on these days. Lombardi Circle will remain open.
    • The Dupont and Rosslyn GUTS buses will be relocated to pick up on North Road, south of Cooper Field.
    • The Arlington Loop, and Capitol Campus GUTS buses will be relocated to pick up on Tondorf Road by McCarthy Hall.
    • A special GUTS bus to and from Rosslyn will run on Saturday, May 18, from 7 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.

We thank you for your cooperation and flexibility during this exciting time as we celebrate the Class of 2024.
