Between May 28 and 30, Harvard University in Cambridge teems with excitement and activity as it celebrates the graduation of its students from one of the most respected research institutions in the world. Families are invited to participate in the week's events including the Family Dinner & Party, the Class Day Picnic, House Luncheon and House Diploma Presentation. The Morning Exercises are the most anticipated event with seniors, dressed in academic cap and gowns, pomp and circumstance into a crowd of over 32,000.
Ticket Information for the Harvard Commencement
Although most of Harvard University's commencement events require no tickets, graduating seniors only receive four tickets to the Morning Exercises and speech ceremony. Due to limited space, additional tickets are not available. Children under 5 years old do not need a ticket if they are able to sit on your lap. Can't make it? DVD recordings of the Harvard "Morning Exercise" are available through the university.
Booking Boston plane tickets and hotel reservations at the luxury Copley Square Hotel early is highly encouraged.
