Commencement Day Logistics for Graduating Students

There are FOUR separate ceremonies this year – one for each of the schools. Please see below for your arrival time and access information.

Parking:

  1. If you arrive with your guests, feel free to park in either the Kaiser Lot (Lot A), the Student Center Garage, or Copernicus Garage.  There is handicap parking available at the stadium.

  2. If are to be dropped off, the best location is at the Sheridan Circle.

  3. If you plan to drive yourself, please park in the Copernicus Garage.

Upon Arrival:

  1. Make your way to the lower level of the football field.

    From Kaiser Lot, go down the stairs or ramp at the south (residence hall side) of the parking lot.

    From either Copernicus Garage or the drop-off location, simply walk down the road toward the stadium.

  2. Proceed through the gate and continue walking toward the tent near the soccer field. That is your check in location.  DO NOT FORGET YOUR GRAD PASS AND REGALIA.

  3. At that point, Commencement Ambassadors and Marshalls will direct you.
