Location and Parking
The 2017 Commencement Ceremony will be held at the Bren Events Center on UC Irvine's campus. Parking is free for all Commencement ceremonies.
PLEASE NOTE: There will be a purse/bag inspection at the door; it is best to leave all backpacks and bags at home or in the car before entering the Bren Events Center.
Bren Center Seating
The arena is significantly large enough to accomodate all guests. All graduates will be seated with their class on the main floor, and family and friends have their choice of stadium seating surrounding the floor. You can download this general seating and staging map
