We look forward to celebrating the Graduating Class of 2022! Below you will find details about an earlier student drop off time, guest seating and accessibility, viewing the ceremony online, and a map of the campus. We strongly encourage everyone to plan for an early arrival that provides enough time to drop off students or guests with accessibility needs and park.
General Ceremony Information
Graduation will be held at the Bradley University Renaissance Coliseum (1600 W Main St, Peoria, IL 61606), Sunday, May 15 at 2:00 p.m.
This week we were informed that road construction in front of the venue closed a portion of West Main Street, but we received confirmation that the road is open.
Reference the campus map for directions, drop off locations, and parking.
Student Drop Off (Earlier Arrival Time 12:45 p.m.
Students should arrive at the Renaissance Coliseum at 12:45 p.m. and enter through the student drop off area as shown on the map. Students will be directed where to line up once inside. A recent change to the staging location requires more time for students to assemble. We appreciate your flexibility in arriving earlier than previously communicated.
Guests may enter the atrium of the Renaissance Coliseum as early as 12:45 p.m., but the doors to the arena will not open until 1:15 p.m. to begin seating.
Accessible Drop Off Options
The semi-circle drive directly in front of the Renaissance Coliseum is available for accessible drop off.
Accessibility Assistance within the Venue
The Renaissance Coliseum is a multilevel facility. Bradley University staff will be available to escort guests that need to be seated on the first floor (courtside). Guests seated on the first floor may have one person accompany them. All other guests should enter the venue through the second floor entrance. An elevator is available.
