Planning Your Visit: Traveling to Campus, Lodging, Dining, and Disability Access

Commencement ceremonies for the UMass Amherst Class of 2014 begin with the Graduate School Ceremony at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, May 9, and continue with the Undergraduate Ceremony at 4:30 p.m. and the Stockbridge School Ceremony on Saturday, May 10, at 10:00 a.m. Individual School and College Senior Recognition Ceremonies will take place on Thursday, May 8 through Saturday, May 10.

This section of the website provides details on travel, lodging, dining, and disability access to help make your visit go as smoothly as possible.

Because of the large number of people traveling to and from campus for the ceremonies, we strongly recommend that you plan your trip well in advance. Limited accommodations are available in campus residence halls as well as in area hotels and motels. A variety of meal options are also available on and off campus.

Please allow plenty of time to travel to campus, to park, and to get to your specific destination.
