Parking and Transportation

Parking and shuttle service is available in the Raley Hall Circle, Stadium, and Hill Street parking lots. Shuttle buses will transport to and from these lots before and after the ceremony. Additional parking is available in the Rivers Street Parking Deck (#31), but will not include shuttle service. Please follow the yellow event parking signs on campus. A map of parking locations (Parking Map) is also available to illustrate the locations of the parking lots (in orange). The Holmes Convocation Center can be seen in the bottom right hand corner (#34).

Parking for individuals with disabilities will be available in the lot adjacent to the Holmes Convocation Center. Traffic control personnel will be at the intersection of Rivers and Hill Street to direct persons with disability placards displayed to the appropriate parking area.

It is suggested that you are parked at least 45 minutes before Commencement is scheduled to begin to allow you enough time to get from the parking lot to the Convocation Center and find seating. While every effort is made to ensure timely arrival and departure of shuttle buses between the Convocation Center and the parking lots, please be sure you have appropriate cold weather dress, footwear, and umbrellas in the event of inclement weather.
