Because the flooring in the IPF consists of a special material designed for the building’s original purpose, the UW Athletics Department advises women graduates and guests to avoid wearing high heels. It is extremely difficult to wear them and walk on the turf, as heels may sink into the ground and create potential for a turned ankle. The last thing we want on your special morning is for you – or one of your family members – to sustain an injury. We strongly advise everyone, you and your women guests, to choose non-heel footwear for commencement morning.
PARKING: UW Transit and Parking Services enforces parking regulations and provides campus shuttles. Click here to access information for maps and additional information about commencement-day parking.
UW will livstream our ceremony on commencement morning via WyoCast. Details will be added as they become available. Note: WyoCast runs on Microsoft Silverlight. We recommend checking in a few minutes early to ensure that you have what you need installed. For technical questions, use the help desk options on the WyoCast home page. (Note: WyoCast seems to play well with Google Chrome and Safari but does not like Firefox.)
