Weather information:
Please note that a forecast of heavy rain, extreme heat or other inclement weather may necessitate relocating the Commencement ceremony indoors to the Mount Holyoke College Field House in the Kendall Sports & Dance Complex Field House. A determination will be made on Tuesday, May 14, and if a relocation is deemed necessary, an announcement will be made by noon on that day. If a relocation is deemed unnecessary, no announcement will be made. Graduates and other members of the Mount Holyoke community are encouraged to monitor their email, the College’s social media and the Commencement webpage for updates.

Before Commencement, all College community members should ensure their contact information is up to date in the emergency notification system. Guests who will be on campus for Commencement weekend can opt into this system for three days by texting “MHCGuestAlert” to 67283.

Graduates, faculty, staff and guests are encouraged to review the Commencement “Know before you go” guide for helpful information about preparing for Commencement.

If the ceremony is relocated, each graduate will still have five tickets for their guests. Guests without a ticket can watch the ceremony via livestream at one of our on-campus viewing stations: the Great Room, the Unity Center or Room 227b in the Community Center or the Morrison Room in the Willits-Hallowell Conference Center. The Gamble and Hooker Auditoriums will be available as viewing stations only if the ceremony is relocated.
