Know Before You Go:
The University has recently modified its Campus Event Policy, including COVID-19 vaccination requirements for some events. The following guidelines will be followed to ensure the success of the Class of 2020 commencement ceremonies and protect the health and safety of all involved.
- Masks will be required for all attendees, regardless of vaccination status, inside the Ryan Center.
- Seating will be assigned through the Ryan Center Box Office for all guests.
- While many large campus events are now requiring proof of vaccination, the URI Class of 2020 Commencement ceremonies will not require proof of vaccination because the number of attendees does not exceed 35% of venue capacity, which allows for sufficient social distancing.
