Early Arrival Recommended for CU-Boulder Commencement Dec. 17

Published: Dec. 15, 2010

The University of Colorado at Boulder will hold its winter commencement ceremony on Friday, Dec. 17, at 9:30 a.m. in the Coors Events Center and people planning to drive to campus should arrive early.

Due to traffic delays, an ongoing construction project at the Coors Events Center and the possibility of adverse winter weather, early arrival is strongly advised. Guests should plan to arrive before 9 a.m. so they can be in their seats by 9:10 a.m. and avoid delaying the ceremony.

People entering the events center are asked not to bring large purses or bags to the ceremony.

City and campus roads may be congested for approximately one and a half hours before the ceremony and about an hour afterward. Parking lots and gray meters near the Coors Events Center are free for commencement parking. Traffic officers and parking supervisors and attendants will be available to assist campus visitors.

A live webcast of the ceremony and additional information about commencement, including a campus parking map and information for people with disabilities, is available at www.colorado.edu/commencement/.
