Wintrust Arena
DePaul will hold its June commencement ceremonies at the Wintrust Arena.  

The Wintrust Arena is located at 200 E. Cermak Rd., Chicago, IL 60616. We invite you to explore the links to the left for important information about the Arena as you make your plans for commencement day.  

Upon entering the Arena guests will be required to go through a metal detector and security check. The Arena also has a very strict purse and bag policy. Adhering to these entrance policies will help speed up your entrance into the Arena. 

Based on the Chicago Department of Public Health's latest guidance, masks are highly recommended at commencement for all graduates and their guests based on the gradual increase in cases, however they are not required. Students ​and 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 livestreamed  for those unable to attend in person. ​The university will continue to monitor the situation and will share any updates to protocol by email, in Newsline and on this website.
