Ceremonial Area Reminder - Commissioning Week 2023

  POSTED ON: Friday, May 19, 2023 1:28 PM by

Welcome to all the friends, families, and general visitors to Commissioning Week 2023! As we welcome you to the historic Naval Academy grounds, also known as "the Yard," we want to remind people to please be mindful that physical training and pets are not allowed in ceremonial areas, which are highlighted in yellow in the map below and include:

  • Porter Rd.
  • Stribling Walk (bounded by Bancroft Hall, T-Court, Chauvenet Hall, Michelson Hall, Sampson-Mahan-Carter Halls, Larson Hall, and the Chapel)
  • The portion of Decatur Rd. adjacent to Leahy Hall and the Museum
  • Truxtun Rd. in front of the Naval Academy Club 
  • Worden Field (including its bleachers). 


The approved route for these activities is around the perimeter of these boundaries and includes the road behind the Naval Academy Club, the road behind Larson Hall and the Chapel, and the road behind Porter Rd. housing. Farragut, Dewey, and Forrest Sherman Fields are available on a not to interfere basis. Thank you for your understanding!

A map for designated smoking areas can be found at the bottom of this document (marked as red stars):
