Please note: Palo Alto will again be holding its 'World Music Day' on the same Sunday as EE commencement. Therefore, University Avenue will be closed to traffic for much of the day. We recommend to those attending Commencement to either enter campus from the back side, or – if arriving via 101 – to take the Embarcadero/Oregon Expressway exit, not University Avenue exit.

The department reserves seats in advance only for guests in wheelchairs or who need special access at the EE ceremony.
If any guests need to reserve up to 4 seats at the diploma ceremony site, please contact Meo Kittiwanich at firstname.lastname@example.org or (650) 723-6539 by May 26, 2017 to make the necessary arrangements. Accommodations for the main Stanford ceremony should be requested by May 26, 2017.
Please note that the department does not have access to wheelchairs or golf carts, so these will not be provided at the department's diploma ceremony and reception sites. Guests are responsible for arranging their own transportation in and around the campus.
Smoking is prohibited in outdoor locations where arranged seating (fixed or temporary) is provided for programs or events. Outdoor locations include, but are not limited to, the Main Quadrangle, Stanford Stadium, amphitheaters, and courtyards.
