2014 Reservation Procedure: 

Reservations for May commencement will be accepted online only, beginning at 8:00 a.m. on the Monday following the current year’s ceremonies. For 2014 May commencement, we will start accepting reservations beginning Monday, May 6, 2013. Rooms are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis and sell quickly. Reservations are accepted one room at a time, requiring separate transactions for multiple rooms. When all rooms have been reserved, all remaining requests will be added to our wait list, which our reservations team monitors closely throughout the year. 

Please Note: With thousands of graduates, all needing multiple rooms, demand for rooms greatly exceeds our capacity. Rooms sell out within minutes, and we do our best to accommodate each guest's needs.  Please be assured that we monitor our availability very closely and are extremely attentive to our wait list.  Should you have any concerns, please email them to us and we will respond promptly. If you call us with reservation requests for commencement, you may experience a longer than normal hold time as we give each guest our full attention. We thank you for your patience.

If rooms sell out and you are unable to reserve a room online, please email your request to  with the requested number of rooms, dates needed, and contact information. We'll respond to email requests through our wait list in the order in which we receive them.
