Parking at Commencement

Please note: This page is for the main University Commencement ceremony. For information about a departmental event, see the departmental convocation pages.

Commencement is held at the University Arena (aka The Pit) on the corner of University Blvd and Avenida Cesar Chavez. Graduating students and faculty should park on the north and west side of the building. Family and guests must park in the large parking lot across University Blvd from the arena. Student and guest parking areas do not require parking permits, but parking is first-come first-serve so make sure to arrive on time.
