Commencement Exercises

Commencement exercises will be held on Saturday May 11, 2013, at 10 a.m. in the Richmond Coliseum, 601 E. Leigh St. Seating is limited and offered on a first-come basis. Please see "Guest seating" below for more information.

Guest seating

The plaza-level doors to the Coliseum will be opened for guests at 9 a.m. The Leigh Street entrance is for graduates only. Tickets are not required and there is no reserved seating. Once the capacity of the Coliseum is reached, no one will be allowed admission. If guests exit the Coliseum during the ceremony, they will not be readmitted as long as the seating capacity has been reached.

Special accomodations

Sections 14L, 15L, 30L and 31L at the Coliseum are wheelchair accessible. Hearing-impaired guests may want to sit in Section 17L, where an interpreter can be seen more easily.

Mobility-impaired guests and candidates may park on 7th Street at the Coliseum entrance. Graduation candidates needing special accommodations should contact Joyce Knight at Disability Support Services by calling (804) 828-1139.


For a nominal fee, parking is available through private contractors in decks and lots adjoining the Coliseum. Mobility-impaired guests and candidates may park at the Coliseum entrance on 7th Street. Visit for directions and additional parking information.

Special note

The Coliseum policy strictly prohibits alcoholic beverages, balloons and/or flammables of any form being brought into the building. Be advised that the police will confiscate these items. We want you to enjoy the day, but we expect our graduates to comply with these policies for the safety of all our guests.
