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.
