Know Before You Go

Out of an abundance of caution, the university is requiring that all large campus venues utilize a weapons detection system at the entrance of venues. Our ceremony is being held at the Power Center for the Performing Arts so guests will need to enter our venue through this system. This is the same type of system that is used at Michigan Stadium and Crisler Center events.

Venue guidelines prohibit graduates or guests from bringing food, beverages, and certain other items into the auditorium. We ask that you plan accordingly. The following items are prohibited from the Power Center:

  • All bags (including purses, clear bags, fanny packs, etc.)

  • All bottles (including all types of water bottles)

  • Alcoholic beverages

  • Aerosol and spray cans

  • Animals (except service animals for persons with a disability)

  • Apparel or signage displaying profane or abusive language

  • Containers of any kind (including coolers, thermoses, cups, cans, flasks)

  • Flags and flagpoles

  • Food of any kind

  • Irritants

  • Noisemakers (including but not limited to whistles, air horns, boom boxes, bull horns, kazoos, sirens, thunder sticks, vuvuzelas, etc.)

  • Projectiles (including footballs, Frisbees and beach balls)

  • Seat cushions containing any type of metal or those with pockets, storage slots, seat backs, arm rests, or attachments of any kind

  • Strollers

  • Video camera, tripods and selfie sticks

  • Umbrellas

  • Weapons

  • Any other item that may obstruct or impair the view or enjoyment of another attendee

If any attendee has a need to bring in an item out of medical necessity or due to child care needs, they may inform the screening staff.
