Finals Weekend

Important Notice

In response to the novel coronavirus, known as COVID-19, and evidence of its likely progression over the next few months, all University events on Grounds are prohibited until at least May 15. Final Exercises will not take place as currently planned. A team is already focused on developing creative alternatives to mark this important occasion for the Class of 2020, which includes holding Final Exercises at a later date. We will communicate updates as we have them. All events on Grounds have been cancelled during this semester.


Our top priority is the safety of students and members of the local and UVA community, visitors, and guests. More information on UVA's response to COVID-19.

A live broadcast of Saturday's and Sunday's Final Exercises ceremonies will be shown on projection screens with open captioning at various climate-controlled locations across Grounds. Tickets are not required. Doors open at 8 a.m. Seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. All sites are wheelchair accessible.
