Faculty participation is vital to the success of NYIT's commencement. Your presence on the stage means a great deal to our graduates.

Faculty Arrival and Line-up

Faculty should arrive on campus by 8 a.m. and report to the Faculty Lounge (gymnasium) for assembly and regalia pick-up.


All faculty (including College of Osteopathic Medicine faculty, librarians, and members of the staff and administration who require regalia) will be able to wear their own school regalia on commencement morning. NYIT gowns will still be available for non-tenured faculty members if needed. There is an inventory of NYIT gowns to accommodate most needs. For more information, please email the Office of Event Planning and Hospitality at commencement@nyit.edu.


Parking is limited on campus. Plan to arrive early and park in the following lots: Wisser Library, 500 Building, Tower/Gerry House, Salten Hall, and Harry Schure Hall. You will be emailed a parking permit to print out approximately two weeks before the event. This parking permit MUST be displayed on your dashboard in order to park in the faculty lots.
