HES Commencement Banquet

HES Commencement Banquet

Harvard University has made the difficult decision to postpone all of the upcoming on-campus Commencement activities. For the health, safety, and well-being of our community, we unfortunately must cancel the Commencement Banquet planned for May 26, 2020.

Save the date for the HES Commencement Banquet 2021 planned for May 25th!

The Commencement Banquet is the annual meeting of the Harvard Extension Alumni Association (HEAA) and open to alumni and members of the current graduating class. Celebrate HES alumni and welcome the Class of 2020 at the annual Commencement Banquet on Tuesday, May 26th! 

As has become tradition, the banquet will take place in the stunning Annenberg Hall! Named in memory of Roger Annenberg, '62 and inspired by the great halls of Oxford and Cambridge Universities, this room is arguably the most impressive space at Harvard. This is an event you won't want to miss!

Additional Event Details


All attendees must bring their paper ticket(s). Without a ticket, entrance into the event will not be permitted. Please note, children are welcome to the Commencement Banquet, but must also have tickets. Children under 2 years old, if sitting on a lap, will not need a ticket.


This is an open seating event and we are unable to reserve seats. If you have a large party we encourage you to arrive prior to 6pm when doors open to secure seating together.
