Outdoors Event  |  Off-campus at the Narrow Gauge Amphitheater

Commencement Location — Narrow Gauge Amphitheater

The Narrow Gauge Amphitheater is located in downtown Farmington, behind Narrow Gauge Cinemas — near UMF’s Prescott Field (adjacent to Leib Field soccer pitch). This is a short walk from campus. For spectators who cannot sit outdoors, limited indoor seating and a livestream of the event will also be available inside Narrow Gauge Cinemas, next to the outdoor venue.

In Case of Inclement Weather

In case of inclement weather, the outdoor Commencement ceremony will move indoors to the UMF Fitness & Recreation Center on Lincoln Street on the UMF campus. The indoor ceremony would begin at 11:00am.

An announcement of a venue change will be made as early as possible.

Graduates will receive a message from the UMF Text Message Alert System. UMF’s social media accounts and website will also announce this venue change as soon as the decision to move indoors is made.


The Commencement ceremony will be livestreamed on the University’s website and its Youtube Channel.
