May 12, 2021
Submitted By: Commencement Committee

The University of Hartford will host five separate ceremonies at the XL Center in downtown Hartford during the weekend of Saturday, May 15, and Sunday, May 16. This venue gives us the best option to safely welcome our graduates and guests, without the additional weather concerns related to outdoor ceremonies. These ceremonies will be streamlined to keep the focus where it belongs—on the students from the Classes of 2020 and 2021 and their wonderful accomplishments during these most challenging of times.

Ceremony Schedule:

Saturday, May 15:

8:30 a.m.: College of Arts and Sciences
2 p.m.: Barney School of Business
7:30 p.m.: College of Education, Nursing and Health Professions

Sunday, May 16:

8:30 a.m.: College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture; Hillyer College; University Studies
2 p.m.: Hartford Art School; The Hartt School

Each of the ceremonies will be livestreamed and that the names of all graduating students will be read, regardless if they are celebrating in person or at home.
