Reserve a room
Lodging in Providence fills up fast, so be sure to make reservations well in advance. Check our accommodations list for options that offer special rates for guests attending RISD Commencement.
Order a cap + gown
There is no cost to you for your cap and gown, so all you need to do next is register online beginning in March. You’ll then pick up the package at the RISD Store the week leading up to the ceremony.
Get your tickets
Each graduating student gets up to 6 tickets for friends, family and guests. Additional tickets may be available after all graduates get a chance to indicate how many tickets they’ll need. Graduating students can reserve tickets beginning in March.
