Location and Accommodations

Students forming a giant B on the Blue Turf

The 100th commencement ceremony will be held in Albertsons Stadium on the iconic blue turf. The entrances available are N and P on the east side and A and D on the west side.

Protect the Blue—No Stilettos or Spiked Heels

Getting to walk on the blue at commencement is going to be awesome! With this privilege comes the responsibility to protect our beloved blue turf. Spiked heels and stilettos will not be allowed. There is a lot of walking and standing on commencement day. We suggest wearing comfortable shoes so you can fully enjoy your commencement experience.

Walk-Through Metal Detectors

To keep pace with evolving security best practices at stadiums around the country, and comply with Idaho law, which prohibits anyone from carrying firearms into campus stadiums, Albertsons Stadium utilizes metal detectors to increase security screening at all entries. Allowable bags will be searched and students and guests will be asked to place metal items into divesting bowls prior to passing through the detectors. In most cases, students and guests will be moved through the screen checkpoints without delay, however, bringing in a prohibited item (list above) will cause unnecessary delay.
