Grad Alley

Grad Alley

Tuesday, May 15, 2018
5:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

The Class of 2018, their families, and their friends are invited to attend the 22nd annual Grad Alley, a Commencement eve celebration marking the accomplishments of our graduates, on Tuesday, May 15, from 5:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

The square is alive with an air of nostalgia and excitement along West Third Street, Gould Plaza, Schwartz Plaza, in the Skirball Theatre, and in the Kimmel Center's 2nd and 3rd floors. Banners will serve as guides while you stroll down Grad Alley enjoying the games and entertainment – the NYU Jazz Cafe, jugglers, an illusionist, Lady Liberty, and more. Snacks are available while taking in the sights and entertainment.

Four Grad Alley admission wristbands (one for the candidate and three for guests) will be included automatically with each candidate's order of All-University Commencement tickets.

Grad Alley takes place rain or shine.
