Commencement Information

The Parking Services Office will be open during the following hours on Commencement weekend:

Saturday, May 17th 1:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Sunday, May 18th 7:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.

Special seating and parking arrangements are available for people with accessible needs or disability.  A sign language interpreter is available in the special seating section.

You may request a pass for special seating by filling out the form below, which will also provide one additional pass for a family member or friend to sit with person.  *We cannot allow entire families in the special seating area due to the limited space that is available.

You will also receive a parking hanger that allows vehicles to drive close to the field to drop off family members needing these arrangements.  At the drop off location (K-Lot, near Ceracche Center), we use golf carts to assist people directly to seating on the field and transport off the field at the conclusion of the ceremony.

At the conclusion of the ceremony, the large number of guests needing transport results in congestion that can create delays in providing assistance. In order to ensure the safety of everyone, we ask that you please be patient during this time and remain seated as the golf carts will return as quickly as they can to transport you to a shuttle. Your cooperation is appreciated.


If you have any questions, please call Parking Services at (607) 274-3756.
