University Stadium

The location is based on guidance from the Governor’s COVID-19 Task Force, the Georgia Department of Public Health, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which encourages outdoor spaces for larger public events like Commencement. A venue of University Stadium’s size will allow for appropriate physical distancing. Face coverings will be required for all in attendance.
