It is usually home to football fans, willing the Canaries to secure a victory against their rivals.
But Carrow Road was this week, for the first time, the stage for the University of East Anglia's (UEA) graduations, which saw thousands mark the end of an era.
Roughly 4,500 students have graduated this week, and a host of honorary graduates including former Norwich MP Charles Clarke and astronomer Mark Thompson.
Today marks the last of the ceremonies, with economics students and those in the school of education and lifelong learning still yet to don their gowns.
On Thursday, the university's medicine students marked their graduation, including the first cohort of 25 physician associates.

Dr Audrey Gibbs, course director, said: 'We're very proud of our first cohort of qualified UEA physician associates. As pioneers, they experienced challenges but were dedicated and hardworking and can be proud of their success.'

Among the students who have graduated this week is Vicky Bristow, who now has a degree in BSc cognitive psychology.
The 41-year-old said studying at UEA had transformed her from someone who was 'afraid to leave the house' into a strong woman.
'I was very ill after giving birth to twins in 2009 after having two haemorrhages, both of which would have killed me without intervention from a skilled medical team and six units of blood,' she said.
Both her children were diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy, and she was told they would be wheelchair-bound for the rest of their lives.
They underwent various operations while she was studying, and now are progressing well with walking.
After graduation, she plans to study for a masters in cognitive neuroscience at UEA.
This week also marks the last year of graduations that mace bearer Dennis Howard will lead the procession.
Mr Howard has worked in the university's security team for 15 years, and has been involved with graduations for six - but will retire in October.
