Virtual Celebration FAQs

What is Remo?

Remo is an event platform where students, faculty, staff, family, and friends will be able interact virtually with each other.

This platform allows for groups to gather at tables and chat via video or text with others at the table. You may move around freely from table to table by clicking on open seats. Family and friends are encouraged to join on the platform to watch and celebrate your wonderful accomplishments.

How do I use Remo?

Change seats by double clicking on open chairs. There are 10 floors available for you to move freely throughout. To move throughout floors, click on the floor numbers on the left. There are 2 buildings available with plenty of seating. You can change buildings by clicking on the "switch rooms" button on the left.

Each table is named on each floor to help guests navigate and find each other.

During the social hours, please make sure your video and microphone are on if you would like to video chat with others. Each table has a chat feature for those who do not have a camera. There is also a general chat function, which all attendees can see, please limit chats to tables only. As with all university functions, participants are expected to follow the code of conduct.

For more information, view the Remo Event Guide for Guests (PDF) or Remo Guest Instructional Video (YouTube).

How do I tell my family and friends where to find me in Remo?

You can tell people where you are by using your room name, floor number, and table number:

  1. Your room name ("Atrium" or "Overflow Room") will be listed at the top. Click on "Switch Rooms" in the upper left-hand corner of the room if you're in the wrong room.
  2. Your floor number (1-10) can be found on the left side of the room. Click on another room number to switch.
  3. Your table number (1-15) is written at the center of the table. Double click on an open seat at the table to switch. Each room can "seat" a maximum of 6 people.

What should I do if I'm having technical issues?

First, make sure you're using a compatible device and browser. Use the Remo System Check to check your device's compatibility. Remo is not compatible with tablets.

For the full information on device and browser compatability, view the Remo Event Guide for Guests (PDF).

If you're still having trouble, contact for more guidance.

Do I need to register or set up an account for Remo?

The platform requires you to set up an account, which can be created the day of or prior to the event. Registration is not required, but is recommended.

When will the virtual rooms on Remo be available, and for how long?

The virtual rooms will open at 3 p.m. CDT, an hour before the formal celebration, so that guests may gather and socialize.

After the ceremony is over, the virtual rooms will stay open for another half-hour for guests to continue to chat and socialize.

Will the graduation video be available after the virtual celebration?

Following the celebration, the graduation video will be available on-demand on both this page and the Law School YouTube channel.
