Coon Rapids High School has traditionally hosted its graduation ceremonies at the University of Minnesota campus to ensure adequate capacity for graduates and their families.

This year, graduation ceremonies will be held in the Maturi Pavilion, located at 1925 University Avenue SE, Minneapolis. In recent years, ceremonies were held at the 3M Arena at Mariucci, which is currently under renovation. Details are now available to assist families in the planning process.

As noted above, the CRHS Graduation ceremony 2023 will be held at 4 p.m. on Sunday, June 4. Throughout the spring, the Class of 2023 Senior page will be continually updated with important information, including the senior’s last day, cap/gown distribution, the senior all-night party, etc.

In addition, be prepared regarding behavior and what-to-wear guidelines by viewing this document: Student Guidelines and Expectations for the graduation ceremony.


Family members planning to be in attendance at the graduation ceremonies are advised of parking options in a number of locations:

  • University Avenue ramp
  • Maroon parking lot, located off Oak Street East and Oak Street SE
  • Lot 37, located northwest of the 3M Arena at Mariucci, on 5th Street SE
  • 4th Street Parking Ramp, located on 4th Street SE and 17th Avenue SE

Download the map of parking options or view it online on the University of Minnesota website. Pricing of parking spots varies by location.


While holding the graduation ceremonies at the University of Minnesota campus allows more family members to be in attendance, it is important to note that seating will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Attendees who may have difficulty with stairs may want to seek out lower-level seating upon arrival. Due to the temporary change of location, seating will be tighter than experienced in past years. As a courtesy, please do not bring additional bags or extra items to allow for maximum capacity for other families.

Accommodations will be made available for attendees with handicap-accessible needs or ASL interpretation. To confirm accessibility accommodations, please make a request with your student’s high school before May 22, 2023.

Finally, Beautiful Bouquets and Custom Class Shirts will be outside Maturi on graduation day if families would like to purchase gifts or you can preorder ahead of time and pick gifts up on graduation day!
