Grad Alley

Tuesday, May 16, 2017

5:00-8:00 pm


The Class of 2017, their families, and their friends are invited to attend the 21st annual Grad Alley, a Commencement eve celebration marking the accomplishments of our graduates, on Tuesday, May 16th, from 5:00-8:00 pm.

The square is alive with an air of nostalgia and excitement along West Third Street, LaGuardia Place, Schwartz Plaza, and in the Skirball Theatre and the Kimmel Center's 3rd floor Market Place. Banners will serve as guides while you stroll down Grad Alley enjoying the entertainment as well as jugglers, an illusionist, Lady Liberty and more. Do no leave without trying your luck on Arcade Alley. Snacks are available while taking in the sights and entertainment.

Guests will enjoy a number of entertainment such as the NYU Jazz Café on Schwartz Plaza, the Illusionist in the Skirball Theatre and much more.

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

Grad Alley takes place rain or shine.
