Visitors should park closest to the location of the event they will attend last and then use shuttle buses throughout the day. Shuttles will run on three separate routes (blue, red and green) and stop at clearly marked locations. A full shuttle route map is available on the commencement website.

Shuttles run on a continuous loop throughout commencement day from 7:30 a.m. until 7 p.m. Each shuttle route will include one handicapped-accessible bus, identified by a handicap sticker and larger doors. Most other shuttles require about three steps to enter or exit.
