Parking and Transportation

Commencement is an extremely busy time on campus and in the surrounding community. The university will welcome approximately 30,000 guests for the weekend’s activities and celebrations. To accommodate our graduates and families, parking on Monday, June 13, will be at Autzen Stadium. Parking is limited, and on a first-come, first-served basis. Parking lots at the stadium will open at 6:30 a.m. To help minimize the impacts of traffic on Monday, guests and graduates are strongly encouraged to carpool or ride share to the stadium. 

Monday, June 13, 2022, is a regular business day on campus. There will be no public parking available on campus other than those with designated ADA placards/plates. Designated ADA parking for those with ADA placards/plates will be in Lot 37 next to Matthew Knight Arena and only a limited number of spaces will be available in the 13th Avenue parking garage on Monday, June 13, 2022.


If you have questions or need assistance to enter the stadium, please contact the commencement office at or 541-346-9262.
