Yes. Guests are permitted; tickets are not required for Commencement. Additionally, the ceremony will be available to watch live on the NUNM website for those unable to attend in person.
Directions and parking rates can be found via the Oregon Convention Center. Onsite parking is provided in the Oregon Convention Center’s underground garage. You may enter the garage through the NE First Avenue (P2) entrance and use the North Elevator to step into the NUNM event space.
Guests who need accommodations during the ceremony (i.e., wheelchair access), please have your Graduate contact the Office of Student Life to discuss further. The Oregon Convention Center offers wheelchairs and electric convenience vehicles (ECVs) complimentary on a first come, first served basis. Please visit the OCC Accessibility webpage for more information.
NUNM will have two professional photographers on site taking pictures (which will then be sent out to students in the weeks after graduation). Any photographs must be taken at your seat for fire safety and to not block the flow of other student processing.
Graduates will be wearing cap/gowns so consider cooler clothing underneath. Friends/Family/Guests, there is no form dress code for graduation. Portland will be expecting 80-degree weather and the Ballroom is well air conditioned. Many come in business casual (as it is a special event) and then others come very casual (t-shirt and jeans). Wear what makes you comfortable.
Flowers (bouquet, leis, etc.) are welcome but please give these to your graduate before or after the ceremony. Guests will not be permitted to walk up to the stage during the ceremony as other students will be crossing the paths. Helium (or lighter-than-air) balloons are prohibited by Oregon Convention Center policies. Please see the Know Before You Go section of their website.
The OCC is a non-smoking venue. This includes e-cigarettes, vaporizers, and all smokable substances. Smoking is permitted outside the facility only in designated areas.
