Robert Morris University announced that the UPMC Events Center will be finished in time for the 2018-2019 commencement ceremony in an email.

The graduate ceremony will be held on Friday, May 10 at 4 p.m., and the undergraduate ceremony will be held the day afterwards at 10 a.m.

Guests attending the graduate ceremony will not require tickets. Guest will need tickets for the undergraduate ceremony. Students graduating will receive up to four tickets for guests.

According to an interview earlier this semester with Provost Jamison, April is the target time frame expected for the events center to finish construction.

“That was optimistic that we were going to maybe get in there for the conference basketball season in January,” said Jamison. “If we’re done mid-April, that’s about what we are shooting for now, so we can have graduation there. Then going forward, make plans for next year.”
