Where to park for 1 p.m. Sunday commencement ceremony

May 15, 2014  

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – Purdue University will award degrees during spring commencement ceremonies at its West Lafayette campus on May 16, 17 and 18 at the Elliot Hall of Music.

New this year, there will be an additional ceremony for graduate students earning master's and doctoral degrees from the College of Engineering. These students will now take part in a 1 p.m. Sunday (May 18) ceremony. This ceremony was added due to an increase in candidate participation in the College of Engineering.

Due to the additional ceremony, university officials are asking those planning to attend at 1 p.m. to park in the Northwestern Garage (see map). This will help the flow of traffic leaving from the earlier ceremony (9:30 a.m.) from the University Garage. Handicap parking will be available in the armory and overflow parking lots, with golf cart shuttle service to Elliot Hall of Music.

Parking for all other ceremonies is available in the University Street garage (see map) as well as Northwestern.

The ceremonies will be webcast and will air live on Comcast Channel 5 and Boiler TV Channel 26. All speeches will be captioned for the hearing impaired.
