Updated Seating Policy

Georgia Tech is looking forward to celebrating its graduates this Friday, May 7, and Saturday, May 8. In response to Gov. Brian Kemp’s recent executive order updating the state’s public health guidelines, all ceremonies will be general admission. 

Tickets are no longer required for guest entry. Seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. ADA seating will require a ticket and will remain physically distanced. Graduates will be spaced 4 feet apart on the field. An updated seating chart showing available sections is available on this page.

All guests and students are subject to the venue’s contactless entry policy. Gates will open one hour prior to ceremony start.  

Any Spring 2021 or 2020 graduate who wants to attend will be accommodated. Regalia is required for graduates to participate in the ceremonies. 

ADA Seat Selection

For guests who require ADA seating but will not be in a wheelchair, please select the ADA zone. Our ADA seating is located throughout the stadium. Tickets will be clustered together and will require no more than two stairs to access your seats.  

For guests who are in a wheelchair, contact the Athletics Ticketing Office at 404.894.3337 by April 23,2021 to make your seat selection. 

Ticketing FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

Will guest seating be physically distanced?

With the exception of ADA seating, seating is first-come, first-serve.  Attendees may choose to sit anywhere they’d like within the open sections of the stadium.  Based on the number of expected attendees, this should allow plenty of room for those who choose to distance themselves from others to do so by choosing seats farther away from other attendees.

My guests are not comfortable sitting in a crowd.

Bobby Dodd Stadium provides ample room for our guests. While certain sections near the field may fill, guests will be able to socially distance themselves in higher sections in the east and west stands.  

Do I still need to enter at my designated gate on my ticket?

No, guests may enter through any gate. View our updated seating chart on this page to see which gates are open and would be the closest to your desired seats. 

Are all the sections open? Are suites open?

Most of our venue seating will be open. View our updated seating chart on this page to see which sections are open. Suites are not open for this event.  

Will general admission fill up? Do I need to arrive early to guarantee a seat?

No, we will have plenty of seating for anyone who would like to attend our Commencement ceremonies. Bobby Dodd Stadium has a maximum capacity of over 50,000 seats and we anticipate being far below this threshold.  

I still need an ADA seat for my guests.

Contact the Athletics Ticket Office at 404.894.5447 for ADA seating.  

Does someone with ADA seats need to show their ticket for entry?

No, no one will have to show a ticket for entry into the venue. As we have a limited number of ADA seats in the venue, we will ask guests seated in an ADA seat to show their ticket to ushers upon request.
