Spring 2019 University Commencement

What is University Commencement?  It is tradition. It is pomp. It is pageantry. It is impressive and spectacular. It is joy and pride for your family, and it is precedent-setting for generations to follow.

Held at various locations on the University of Houston campus and surrounding venues in the city, University Commencement is the formal celebration at which degrees are conferred upon graduating students. University Commencement is an event not to be missed for students, families, and friends.
