Parking is complimentary and no permits are needed. You may use any legal parking space except those reserved for graduates, VIP's, Faculty, commencement staff and disabled parking. Parking attendants will be on hand to help assist with parking in reserved areas on campus. Commencement is a very well-attended event; therefore, most campus parking will be full. In addition, the ceremony will begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. The earlier you arrive to campus, the better your choice of parking and seating.
Accessible Parking and Mobility Assistance
Disabled parking for the commencement ceremony will be located in the front of HTC Center. Parking attendants will be able to provide directions to drivers needing accessible parking. A state issued handicap tag is required for disabled parking.
Disabled/elderly passengers may be dropped off at designated location. For safety concerns, please do not drop off passengers in the middle of the road or curbside as this will increase traffic congestion.
Continuous, complimentary shuttle service from parking areas to the HTC Center will be available. Guests are urged to use the shuttle service. Shuttles are wheelchair accessible.
For the return trip, passengers may board the shuttles at the HTC Center turn out. Please be aware that the length of time for the shuttles to return to this area may vary according to the amount of traffic along the route.
