Did You Graduate?

We are pleased to share that our StageClip site has been published and the clips from our Spring 2024 Commencement have started to go out to graduates. You can search by graduate name on our microsite, and graduates will also be sent a direct link to their individual clip. 

Graduation Details

Naropa University’s Spring 2024 Commencement Ceremony will be held in Macky Auditorium (on the University of Colorado at Boulder campus). 

  • Graduates are required to be at Macky Auditorium (inside) an hour before starting time. Doors will open 45 minutes before starting time for guests. The ceremony usually lasts between 2.5 – 3.0 hours.
  • No food or drinks are allowed inside the auditorium, with the exception of water. You may bring your own water bottle and water fountains are available in the Macky lobby.

The auditorium is a short walk from Naropa University’s Arapahoe Campus, and many people prefer to walk up the hill to the auditorium. Free parking is available at Naropa and paid parking is available outside Macky. Get more information on directions and parking


  • No one (other than graduating students) is allowed inside Macky Auditorium without a ticket. Tickets may be obtained through the Office of Student Success; please watch your Naropa email for information.


  • A reception will be held at the Nalanda Events Center immediately following the ceremony at Macky Auditorium.
