Parking & Campus Transport

Parking locations and designations are subject to change. Check back here often for the most accurate and up-to-date information.
During Commencement weekend, traffic on campus is unusually heavy and parking is very limited. Many of the regular routes that students, faculty and staff are familiar with will be altered or closed in order to manage the large volume of traffic. We recommend that you carpool, use shuttles and public transportation, and, most of all, plan ahead.

Where Did You Park?

We recommend that guests download and use a smart phone car-finder app or simply write down where you parked and let others know where to meet you after the ceremonies. At the end of the day, this will be helpful. (Download a free app from your smart phone service/app store.)

Location, Location, Location

To make parking as easy as possible for the Undergraduate Commencement on Sunday, we strongly recommend that you choose your parking location based on the location of your individual college ceremony. View the map and you will find shuttle stops are near all of the recommended parking lots for each of the college ceremonies:
