A commencement tradition is revived at the University of Houston. It is pomp. It is impressive. It is spectacular. It is joy and pride for your family, and a model for future generations to follow. The commencement is comprised of two coordinated ceremonies: University-wide Commencement, held at TDECU Stadium, and College Convocation, held at locations around campus and at NRG Park.
University-wide Commencement is the formal university-wide celebration at which President Renu Khator officially confers degrees upon graduating students. The ceremony features a processional of graduates and faculty, remarks from the President, and a vibrant keynote speaker. University-wide Commencement is an event not to be missed for students, families, and friends.

College Convocation is personal and meaningful. It is a shared celebration with faculty and friends of your college who have shaped your education. Hear your name called and walk across the stage to receive your accolades.
For the complete commencement experience, graduates and their families are encouraged to attend both ceremonies. Don’t miss out on this unforgettable exclamation point on your UH career!
If your loved ones are unable to attend University-wide Commencement in person, the ceremony will be live-streamed on the Commencement Live (Video) page on this website at the day and time of the ceremony.
