Due to the limited number of parking spaces available on campus during Commencement Weekend, parking will be available on a first come, first served basis. 

On Friday, June 13, 2014, parking permits WILL NOT be required to park on campus; however, on Saturday, June 14, 2014, parking permits WILL be required for the various lots on campus. Each undergraduate student will be issued one parking permit for themselves (the students graduating) and one additional permit for guests who wish to attend Commencement. All other guests will need to find alternative parking off campus. For people with the disabled parking placard, Campus Safety will hold a limited number of spaces on campus near Buck Shaw Stadium to be filled on a first come, first served basis.


Northern California weather is generally very pleasant in June with daytime temperatures in the 70-80 degree range, with mornings and a cool breeze starting in the late afternoon. Please remember sunscreen and hats for daytime events, and a sweater for the morning and evening events.
