Expect heavy traffic on commencement days. Metered, street parking near commencement
exercises at the Colonial Life Arena, Koger Center for the Arts and Horseshoe will
be very limited. For easier travel and parking during commencement, the university
provides a free shuttle service from on-campus garages to commencement sites.
Colonial Life Arena and Koger Center for the Arts Parking
On-street parking will be limited. There are four large parking lots within walking
distance of the Colonial Life Arena and parking is also available in the nearby Discovery
Garage. Accessible parking is available in most, if not all, of these lots for those
with a state-issued disability pass, sticker or license plate.
The Pendleton Street Garage will be available for guests of commencement exercises
on the Horseshoe. Guests may park in metered garage spaces at no charge. Please do
not park in reserved or handicapped spaces unless you have a permit. Metered street
parking is available around the Horseshoe. Those with a state-issued disability pass,
sticker or license plate may park for free at meters or in disabled parking spaces
at many university buildings.
