Parking

The University will provide free shuttle buses from Autzen Stadium to the main campus, running from 7:00 a.m. to approximately 6:45 p.m.  All commencement guests should plan to park at Autzen Stadium and ride the shuttle bus.  Guests and students with ADA permits only will be able to park in the Columbia Garage, which is underneath the Ford Alumni Center.  A shuttle will be available from the Columbia Garage to take guests around to the various drop-off sites on campus.  For guests needing wheelchair accessible shuttles please check with a volunteer at the Columbia Garage shuttle area.  For Psychology’s ceremony, the nearest shuttle drop-off will be at 15th and University in front of the Student Recreation Center.  Golf carts will be available from there to take ADA guests to the EMU Green.  Please check in at the nearest information booth to request golf cart service if necessary.  Guests without ADA placards but with limited stamina/mobility may be dropped off on Villard Street for shuttle service to campus drop-off areas.
