We know you are anxious to secure tickets for your family and friends at NKU’s In-Person Commencement in BB&T Arena.
Per state guidelines for capacity, tickets are REQUIRED for every guest, including children regardless of age. Seating will be randomly pre-assigned and will be located on your ticket. Seating will be grouped in pairs with 6ft. distance between each pair.
Guests should enter BB&T Arena through the event level doors located at the end of the pedestrian bridge coming from the Welcome Center Garage.
Doors to the arena will open one hour prior to each ceremony. Please allow adequate time for parking and entrance protocols. Temperature checks will be completed on all attendees before entry is permitted. Attendees who arrive unmasked will not be allowed entry. Mask compliance and social distancing will be strictly enforced.
To ensure the safety of every guest, all persons, including graduates, will be subject to a bag check.
Disabled guests and graduates may be dropped off in front of BB&T Arena at the circle drive off the Nunn Drive entrance to campus. You will be directed to the elevator which will take you to the appropriate level in the arena.
Disabled parking is available on all levels of the Welcome Center Garage located across the street from the arena. Accessible seating is available in the last row of certain sections on the concourse level for disabled guests or those who have difficulty navigating stairs. Commencement guests can visit the Guest Services booth or ask a BB&T Arena usher for assistance finding a seat that meets their mobility needs.
Special accessibility accommodation for guests should be noted on the guest ticket request form.
Accommodations for graduates with special needs will be made at check-in or may be made by calling (859) 572-5810 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parking is free of charge in all surface lots and garages on May 7, 8 and 9. Disabled parking is available on all levels of the Welcome Center Garage located across the street from the arena. Please allow plenty of travel time as commencement traffic will be heavy.
