Disabled persons (DP) may park in blue marked spaces located throughout campus. The Main Parking Structure and Leavey Lot are the closest proximity parking lots to Stevens Stadium. Display the DP placard or DP license plate at all times.

Saturday - Undergraduate Ceremony, Graduation Picnic

The Main Parking Structure is designated for DP parking. This lot is approximately 200 feet away from the North Gate of Stevens Stadium. Enter through Accolti Way off El Camino Real. Display the DP placard or DP license plate at all times. A drop-off area is also available for guests without a DP placard or DP plate. Do not use the Main Parking Structure for drop-off as you will be unable to exit until the ceremony ends. Learn more
