We recommend that you carefully review the Wintrust's purse and bag policy. The diagram to the side shows what's allowed and what's not. Please also familiarize with the list of prohibited items that will not be allowed in the arena.

Wintrust Bag Policy
he Wintrust Arena strictly enforces these policies without exception

Upon entering the arena guests will be required to go through a metal detector and security check. Adhering to these entrance policies will help speed up your entrance into the arena. An exception will be made for medical necessary items after proper inspection at the entrance.

Mask-wearing will be highly recommended, though not required, during the ceremony in alignment with the guidance outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Chicago Department of Public Health. Guests will not be asked to provide proof of vaccination to enter the venue. DePaul encourages guests traveling from out of state to get tested before attending. The ceremony will be streamed online for those unable to attend in person.
