2016 Commencement Exercises

Friday, May 27, 2016

Barclays Center

620 Atlantic Ave

Brooklyn, NY

Doors Open: 3:00 pm


On Friday, May 27 Baruch College will celebrate the 2016 Commencement Exercises at the Barclays Center.  Thank you for your participation as we honor our Baruch graduates and their accomplishments on this occasion. The ceremony will begin promptly at 4:00 pm. 

Location and time of arrival

Faculty who are participating in the ceremonies should enter Barclays through the VIP entrance, also called the CK Entrance (Calvin Klein), located on Atlantic AvenueBaruch student volunteers wearing Commencement shirts and directional signage will be placed around the plaza area to help point you in the right direction.  Make sure you bring appropriate ID and travel lightly.  Barclay’s security will be present at the front and will wand and check your belongings before you are allowed to gain entry. Robing, and assembly for the procession, will all take place at the Calvin Klein Courtside Club.

If you are attending the ceremony, participating in the procession, and will be seated on the stage, plan to arrive by 3:15 pm.  This will give enough time to make your way to the Club, change into your robes and enjoy light refreshments. 


If you have already ordered your academic regalia, you may pick it up on either May 23 or May 24 between 11:00 am and 7:00 pm in the Newman Vertical Campus Multipurpose Room (NVC 1-107). Garments not picked up by Thursday, May 26 will be available in the faculty robing area located at the Calvin Klein Courtside Club at the Barclays Center. At the conclusion of the ceremony, please remember to return your cap and gown to the Robing area. Please do not return academic regalia back at the College. 

If you have not ordered your attire, we will have spare regalia available to you onsite at the Barclays Center that can be used for the duration of the ceremony.

On behalf of the Commencement Planning Committee, we look forward to your participation at Baruch College’s 2016 Commencement Exercises.  For any questions, please contact the Office of Student Life at (646) 312-4550.
