Entrance Maps for Commencement Venues

Moby Arena Guest Entrance Map
Doors will open 1 hour before each ceremony. Following the ceremony, we ask that family and friends meet their graduates outside of Moby so that CSU is able to prepare the arena for the remaining ceremonies.

Moby Arena Students Entrance Map
The graduate/student entrance will be located on the southeast corner of the Auxiliary Gym at Moby Arena. The Auxiliary Gym is the attached building located south of Moby. We ask that all graduating students meet their family and friends outside of Moby following the ceremony, so that CSU is able to prepare the arena for the remaining ceremonies. Please bring only necessary items, as graduates are expected to abide by Moby Arena Policies.

Moby Arena Policies

Clear Bag Policy & Metal Detectors 

A clear bag policy will be in effect for the ceremonies held at Moby Arena this fall. Colorado State implemented a clear bag policy for all events at Moby Arena to enhance event security procedures, to provide a safer environment for the public, and to expedite patron entry into Moby Arena. This new policy limits and restricts the sizes and types of bags that are permitted into Moby during events.

We highly encourage patrons to leave prohibited items in their car, or dispose of prohibited items at their respective entrance. For guests’ convenience, complementary lockers will be available to guests outside of the North entrance for any item that is not permitted into the Arena.

New to Moby Arena are metal detectors for guests to pass through before entering. Alternative accommodations for screening will be available for those who need it.

At Colorado State University we want to ensure all guests have a positive, memorable and safe experience during Commencement. We look forward to celebrating your graduates’ special day.

Water bottle policy

Plastic, disposable and crushable bottles, empty and without a cap are permissible.
