The primary parking areas for the ceremony are A2, A3, C1, C2, and F1 lots. View a map of campus.

Each commencement ceremony will start promptly at the specified time.  Plan on arriving early to allow plenty of time to find a parking space and walk to the O'Pake Fieldhouse for the ceremony.  Lots A2 and A3 are the most convenient parking areas in terms of arriving to and leaving campus after the commencement ceremony.  Complimentary shuttles will run on Saturday continuously from 7 a.m. until 1 p.m. from lots A2, C1, and C2 to the O'Pake Fieldhouse. 

Parking closest to the O'Pake Fieldhouse (lot E-1) is reserved for patrons with state-issued handicap plates or placards. While there are other lots that are reasonably close to the facility, individuals with mobility issues should plan to arrive early as these spaces are very limited. Alternatively, a drop-off area will be available to families that wish to drop off patrons with mobility issues near the venue. Both of these areas are accessible from Baldy Street.  A state-issued handicap placard does not guarantee guests parking in our reserved parking areas.

It is a good idea to arrange a place to meet your family after the program concludes. South Campus Drive will be closed from Court Lane to Baldy Street after commencement has concluded for pedestrian movement. If you have any questions or concerns about parking for commencement, feel free to contact Public Safety and Police Services at 610-683-4002.
