Inclement Weather Info
Inclement Weather Plan: In case of inclement weather, the Commencement ceremony will be held at an off-campus location. The alternate location is currently TBD. Guests who are unable to attend the ceremony in person can view it live online, rain or shine, at www.regent.edu/commencement. The ceremony is very unlikely to be moved for non-severe weather conditions.
Inclement Weather Notification: If the ceremony is relocated for severe weather, notification will be sent via Regent Alert and posted to the Regent University website. Guests should call the Regent Hotline at 757.352.4777 for a recorded message with full inclement weather details. Guests at The Founders Inn and Spa will be given written
notices at their doors. Do not go to the alternate location without notification (via Regent alert, website or hotline) that the ceremony has been relocated.
Inclement Weather Alternate Location: The alternate location for the commencement ceremony is To Be Determined. The location will be posted on this website as soon as it is finalized.
For Guests: If the Commencement ceremony is relocated due to inclement weather, the ceremony start will be delayed until 10:00 a.m. Security and volunteers will assist with directing guests. Security will be randomly checking bags upon entrance, so please plan accordingly and refrain from bringing overly large items.
The ceremony will also be broadcast live on campus in the Divinity Chapel and Robertson Hall. Please refer to the campus map.
For Graduates: If the Commencement ceremony is relocated due to inclement weather, the ceremony start will be delayed until 10:00 a.m. Due to the additional logistical challenges, graduates should still arrive by 8:15 a.m.
