Parking & Accessibility

Parking

Parking on campus will be affected due to commencement. We encourage guests and graduates to carpool to maximize the use of all available parking spaces. Please obey all posted signs and refrain from parking on grass or fields. View a map of all parking locations. 

Parking for graduates and guests during the commencement ceremonies will be available in Lot K, adjacent to Trask Coliseum. Guests with a state issued Disability Placard are encouraged to park in Lot K at Wagoner Drive. If you do not have a state issued Disability Placard, you may drop family members off in front of Trask Coliseum prior to finding a parking space.
