Each student will receive 8 tickets so that all attendees have a pleasant experience. Tickets will be available for graduates to pick up from the Bookstore during cap and gown distribution.
Graduates and their guests may park for free during Commencement in all student lots; Parking Lots: 1, 11, 12, 13, 14, 16, 17, 18, 20, or Parking Structures I, II, or III.

If you’re parking near a roadway, you may not see immediate sidewalks. This was purposely designed to keep pedestrians away from busy streets. From the parking lots, walk along the thoroughfare edges, then go to the nearest intersection and follow the pedestrian sidewalk. Do not walk on the campus roadways and please do not jay-walk across. (The ceremonies will take place on upper campus in the Central Quad.)
