Commencement Campus Parking

Parking

Campus parking is free on each commencement day and available in most lots, please see the Commencement Parking Map. Visitors must observe regulations for posted disability parking and individually reserved spaces. Please remind your guests to arrive early to avoid traffic congestion and to allow for travel time between the parking lots and the Carver Academic Facility. Disabled parking is available in the 9G parking lot. Parking attendants will be available to assist guests with special parking needs.

Shuttle

For those parking in the south campus parking lots (C lots), there will be a free shuttle service available from the 12G parking lot off South College Drive by Fairhaven College that will drop off near Carver Gym.  

There will be three (3) shuttle buses running in a loop during the following times:
