GRE Commencement

Fordham University's 178th Commencement

Date and Time: May 20, 2023, 10:00 a.m.

Location: Rose Hill Campus | Edwards Parade

All GRE graduates are welcome and encouraged to attend Fordham University's annual commencement. Commencement is divided into two events: the University commencement ceremony on Edwards Parade at 10:00 a.m., immediately followed by GRE’s diploma ceremony in Keating First Auditorium.

The Commencement Ceremony livestream was on and GRE's Diploma Ceremony was streamed on this page. An accessible version will be posted in a few days.

The livestream for both ceremonies has concluded.


We are fortunate to have the Metro-North Harlem and New Haven line trains just steps away from the entrance to the Rose Hill campus, and recommend you consider using the train if you are traveling from Manhattan, Westchester County, or Connecticut. For detailed Metro-North schedule information visit the MTA website.  

Parking at Rose Hill

Limited complimentary parking will be available on the Rose Hill campus for Commencement-related events. The GPS address for parking and campus map can be found on our Directions to Rose Hill page. Parking will also be available free of charge at G&R Parking Garage (Fordham Plaza) on May 21 only. Enter on 189th Street between Washington and Third avenues (one block south of Fordham Road) and walk one block north to the Rose Hill campus through the Third Avenue or Bathgate Avenue entrances. Fordham College at Lincoln Center graduates and guests will find the garage at Fordham Plaza is closer to their diploma ceremony than the campus parking garage.
