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 preceding and following each ceremony.  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.

December 10, 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 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.

Guests and graduates with a DMV-issued disabled persons parking placard or license plate will be able to park on a first-come, first-park basis at designated stalls in Parking Lot 25 and the Pavilion Parking Structure.

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!
