Directions, Parking, and Seating

The ceremony will be held at the PNC Bank Arts Center

Parking is ample at the PNC Bank Arts Center, but you may be required to park in one of the remote areas. If you do park in one of the lots on the perimeter of the Arts Center, shuttle buses will be available for you and your guests. Please follow the directions of the parking attendants. Also, please note that traffic will be heavy on Commencement Day and additional time should be allotted for travel to and from the Arts Center.

Guests are requested to take their seats by 12:00 p.m. and to remain seated until the faculty have left the area at the conclusion of the ceremony. No one will be admitted to the seating area without a ticket. Weather permitting, additional seating will be available on the lawn; tickets are not required for this area. The gates to the Arts Center will open at 10:30 a.m. on Commencement Day.

If you have additional questions, please call the Office of Student Life at 732-571-3417.
