The commencement ceremonies are all scheduled in the Stephen C. O'Connell Center, an indoor venue, so weather will not impact these ceremonies

The watch parties available in Ben Hill Griffin Stadium will be available rain-or-shine April 29-May 3. However, if lightning occurs within 8 miles of the venue, safety protocol requires us to evacuate the stands. Attendees may remain in the corridors and halls until no lightning has been spotted within 8 miles for 30 minutes, at which point the stands can re-open.

UF uses the Florida Storms app, which can be downloaded for free from Google Apps or the App Store. UF’s radio stations WUFT89.1 and WJUF 90.1, and UF’s online weather center website is: ufweather.org 

When planning for the weather, please keep in mind Ben Hill Griffin Stadium’s prohibited items list, which includes umbrellas.
