Universitywide Commencement change in date and location announcement from Provost Kumar

October 18, 2021

Dear Johns Hopkins Community:

Renovations at Royal Farms Arena have caused a change in the previously announced date and location of the 2022 universitywide Commencement. We will not hold a ceremony on May 26, 2022. Instead, the ceremony will take place on Sunday, May 22, 2022 at 6:30 p.m. ET on Homewood Field at the Homewood campus. We are also setting a rain date for the morning of May 23, if needed.

We hope this notice gives students, faculty, family members, and friends ample time to plan. We will update information and provide helpful details about all our ceremonies in the coming months at our Commencement website.

We are, as always, looking forward to a celebratory event that will cap off our students’ many years of hard work. At this time, we also are planning to resume open attendance for all friends and family, no tickets required, and expect to welcome all students who wish to participate. Unfortunately, the uncertain future surrounding COVID-19 restrictions could force us to make changes to the ceremony as it gets closer. Any further changes will be communicated by email and on the website.

Thank you for your flexibility. My colleagues and I look forward to celebrating with the Class of 2022.

Sincerely,

Sunil Kumar
Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs
