Clear bag policy at Moby Arena

Moby Arena is a clear bag facility. We ask that all guests attending ceremonies at that location abide by the clear bag policy. Complimentary lockers will be available onsite at the north entrance.

Mask Policy

Beginning Thursday, March 3, Colorado State University no longer requires masks to be worn in indoor areas on our Larimer County campuses. Wearing a mask will be a personal choice rather than a university requirement and we will respect everyone’s personal choice.


Tickets are not required for fall ceremonies at this time.

Ceremony Schedule

  • Doors will open one hour prior to each ceremony, and ceremonies will last approximately two hours.
  • Please note that metal detectors will be in use at Moby Arena and guests must adhere to the clear bag policy.
