Commencement Parking and Transportation

Transportation Planning for Commencement

Need mobility assistance?

Our complimentary Mobility Assistance Shuttle service will be provided between the Pavilion Parking Structure and the Southeast entrance at the venue from 8am - 12:30pm.  Those who wish to utilize this service should park in the Pavilion Parking Structure, and proceed to the shuttle stop located just outside the structure’s west entrance, on the North Dairy Road bike path.

Graduates and guests may park at no charge in Lot 25 or the Pavilion Parking Structure, from 7am - 1pm on either ceremony date. 

August 26-27, 2022

It’s an important day for our graduating Aggies and we want to help you and your guests plan your visit. See our transportation guide (with map) below. With a little forethought, our hope is that everyone headed to UC Davis to celebrate the Class of 2022 and know right where go! 

Parking Information

Parking is complimentary for all graduates and Commencement guests from 7 a.m.-1 p.m. in designated lots (listed below or see map). Once you park on campus, take note of which lot you are in. The University Credit Union Center is centrally located near campus parking areas, easily accessible on foot. And for those who need assistance, we have Mobility Assistance Shuttles available to assist.

  • Share the ride! If you do drive to campus, plan to carpool and fill those empty seats! Roads and campus parking will be highly impacted during Commencement. Reducing the number of vehicles on the roadways will help everyone.
  • Have a Sustainable Commencement and opt for public transportation. See more below!
