Commencement maps

The Harvard University Commencement website contains helpful maps and plans for Commencement. Visit the Locations, Maps, and Directions page for seating plans of Tercentenary Theatre and information on entrance gates to Harvard Yard.

Public transportation

The use of public transportation on Commencement Day is strongly recommended. The Harvard Square stop on the MBTA's Red Line subway is directly across the street from Harvard Yard.


All visitor parking for Commencement Day is at Soldiers Field Road, the Harvard Business School, and the Athletic Area, with shuttles from those locations to Harvard Square all day.
