At UC San Diego we recognize the significant milestone graduation marks in a student's life. In addition to your commencement ceremony, you're invited to attend the annual All Campus Graduation Celebration, which provides all undergraduate and graduate students an opportunity to celebrate with friends outside the bounds of their college or academic school.
This year's Commencement ceremonies will take place Saturday, June 15, 2013 and Sunday, June 16, 2013.

Planning ahead for physical access to Commencement ceremonies for parents and family members with disabilities is important! UC San Diego welcomes families and friends who have disabilities, and provides an opportunity to make requests in advance for modifications.
The All Campus Graduation Celebration (ACGC) provides undergraduate and graduate students an opportunity to celebrate graduation with their friends outside of the bounds of their college or academic school. Held on RIMAC field, ACGC is a fun, informal (no caps and gowns) tradition featuring food, beer and wine, entertainment, and a short program of speakers.
ACGC will take place the evening of Friday, June 14. For more information, including ticket information see the Senior Spring website, which will be updated Spring Quarter.
To celebrate your student’s commencement, plan an event at The Loft! If your taste is a brunch, lunch, or a party with family and friends, The Loft, with the flavor of Zanzibar Cafe, is the perfect venue to design your own graduation experience.
Please contact Elizabeth Link, The Loft Manager, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (858) 822-4532 for the special UCSD Commencement rental rate.

Families are encouraged to make travel plans, hotel arrangements, and car rental reservations early. Approximately 4,000 undergraduate students graduate from UC San Diego each year, and therefore hotels in the area reach occupancy quickly.
UC San Diego Parent & Family Programs has partnered with Bartell Hotels to offer parents, students, families, alumni, and friends reduced hotel rates at some of the finest properties in San Diego.
