Seating

A great deal of setup and planning is required to prepare Tuck for Investiture each year. This year requires additional preparation as another Dartmouth ceremony will take place on the Tuck green prior to Investiture. For that reason, we ask that you kindly wait to reserve any seats until 12 p.m. on the day of Investiture (June 11) and be thoughtful about the number of seats you reserve.

Weather

In the event of rain, the ceremony will be held in Leede Arena. Admission is free, and there will be plenty of room for all guests (there are no tickets for admission).

COVID Policies

Please note for your safety and the safety of the community, all of those attending Commencement activities on campus must be vaccinated to the level of the current Dartmouth student/staff requirement, currently vaccinated with a booster, or proof of negative COVID test within 72 hours prior to arriving on campus.

Acceptable proof of vaccination includes paper or digital images of a CDC Vaccination Card. The easiest, fastest and most confidential way for attendees to show compliance is through the Bindle app. This is a free and easy-to-use app adopted by many venues and cultural institutions to confirm individuals comply with health screening protocols.

Please keep a face covering with you at all times. Masks are required to be worn by all attendees of indoor events, regardless of vaccination or recent testing status, in accordance with the College's face covering policy. For more information, please visit the Visitor Guidance page, and Face Covering Policy.

If you are feeling unwell or have concerns for your health and safety, or are not able to meet these health guidelines, please contact us to discuss your options. We hope these guidelines help you and your guests as you prepare to visit campus and note that these guidelines are subject to change based on the most current College policy at the time.
