Parking & Arrival Information

Two parking passes will be included with each graduate’s ticket order. Hung from the vehicle’s rearview mirror, the placard serves as a gate pass throughout Commencement weekend. One parking pass may be exchanged for one Special Needs parking pass during ticket registration, or at ticket pickup.

Students do not need parking passes if their cars remain on campus throughout the weekend. However, no one, including students, can enter campus on Sunday after 10 p.m. without a Commencement parking pass.

On-campus parking will be limited and every vehicle must have a Commencement parking pass to enter campus on Monday morning. University Police will direct guests to available parking. Commencement guest are encouraged to park at Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial (LJVM) Coliseum. No pass is needed at the Coliseum and shuttles run continuously to and from campus beginning at 6 a.m. Either a Commencement ticket or a Wake Forest ID is required to ride the shuttle.
