Plan to arrive early to allow plenty of time to find a parking space and walk/take the shuttle to the Fieldhouse for the ceremony. Primary parking areas for the ceremonies are A2, A3, F1, C1, C2 lots. Click here to view a map of the campus.
Lots A2 and A3 are the most convenient parking areas in terms of arriving to and leaving campus after the commencement. Complimentary shuttles will run before and after each ceremony between lots A2 and E2, beginning at 7 a.m. The E2 area, directly across the lane 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 lots F1, C1 and C2. 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. A 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. South Campus Drive will be closed from Court Lane to Baldy Street after commencement has concluded for pedestrian movement. All vehicular traffic will exit South Campus Drive towards Main Street by Rothermel Hall. If you have any questions or concerns about parking for commencement, feel free to contact Public Safety and Police Services at 610-683-4002.
