The primary parking areas for the ceremony are A2, A3, C1, F1, F3, and F4 lots. View a map of campus.

The commencement ceremonies start promptly at the designated 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 continuously from 7 a.m. until 12 p.m. between lots A2 and E2.  The E2 area, directly across the street from the O'Pake Fieldhouse, provides guests taking the shuttle the shortest walk to the commencement ceremony.  The shuttle is not available to and from the F and C lots; the distance from the C parking areas to the Fieldhouse may be considered long for guests who experience difficulties walking.

If you or a member of your family has a special need for handicap parking, please contact commencement staff immediately.  More information about accessible parkingA state-issued handicap placard does not guarantee guests parking in our reserved parking areas.  Please call early to reserve your space.

It is a good idea to arrange a place to meet your family after the program concludes.

All vehicular traffic will exit South Campus Drive towards Main Street by Rothermel Hall.
