• The countdown has begun as Atlanta Public Schools prepares to recognize our 2019 graduating seniors at commencement exercises held May 21-24 at the Georgia Institute of Technology McCamish Pavilion (965 Fowler Street, NW, Atlanta, GA 30318).


    To ensure a smooth arrival to the McCamish Pavilion, we want to make sure guests are properly notified about important details associated with the new location for the 2019 Commencement Week.


    Four things you need to know upon your arrival to the Georgia Institute of Technology McCamish Pavilion:


    Clear Bag Policy

    Guests of the McCamish Pavilion must adhere to Georgia Tech’s Clear Bag Policy. Please bring a small bag (no larger than 4.5” X 6.5”) or clear bag to the facility. A complimentary clear bag valet will be available for guests. You can view and print the clear bag policy here. Note: medical bags will be permitted.

    Security Check Points

    Upon arrival, guests are required to enter through security check points. Outside food and beverage and weapons, including those carried with a permit, are not permitted.


    In anticipation of heavy traffic, we strongly encourage guests to arrive one hour in advance of their respective ceremonies. For your convenience, the Ken Byers Tennis Complex has been identified as an inside holding area for early arrivals.
