Commencement and Student Moves

Transportation & Parking

If you are attending ceremony on June 16 or 17, we strongly encourage carpooling, ride-sharing or using public transit. Plan to arrive at least an hour before the ceremony begins so you have time to park and walk or shuttle to RIMAC Field or RIMAC Arena.

Move-Out Parking

For the best vehicle access, we recommend that students move out June 11–15. Anyone who needs to load a vehicle to move out on June 16 must display a college-specific move-out loading voucher on the dashboard.
