Suggested Driving Routes

Purdue University police are urging motorists to get an early start and follow route and parking suggestions for the August commencement ceremonies as road construction continues near campus.

Motorists should take State Route 26 to North River Road and take the Purdue University West Lafayette exit to get onto Fowler Avenue and then on to Northwestern Avenue. Garage parking will be available off Northwestern, Grant Street and Third Street.


Parking will be available in the Grant Street, Northwestern Avenue, University Street, and Wood Street parking garages. Please avoid parking in 24-hour reserved places. Uniformed Purdue police will be on duty and will provide directions, as needed. The surface spaces around the Hall of Music will be reserved for handicapped parking. Shuttles services will be provided in those areas for guests if needed.
