Options on Campus

Campus dining facilities will open during Commencement for sit-down meals and quick snacks. Food kiosks in the Ronald Tutor Campus Center will open at 6 a.m.

There will also be several tables selling bottled water across campus. The weather on commencement day can range into the 80s and 90s, so it is recommended that you bring water with you to stay hydrated. While personal water bottles are not allowed, factory sealed bottles of water are allowed.

There will also be several free water fill stations across campus to refill bottles during the day. Please note that not all indoor locations allow water. 

Dining options in USC Village are also available.
