The UTA Police Department recommends that families and friends carpool as much as possible for the Commencement ceremony to alleviate traffic congestion. Families and guests are encouraged to first check parking availability in the Park North, Park Center, and Park South garages north of the events center in the College Park District. Lots 47, 53, F10, F11, and F12 will also be available for guest parking. Please be aware that you may have to walk several blocks from your parking area to reach the College Park Center.
There will be a drop-off area for guests with mobility issues at Spaniolo Drive at the southwest corner of College Park Center or Center Street and the northeast corner of the College Park Center. Visit www.utacollegepark.com/visit-us/map.php for locations.
Moritz Plaza will be closed to provide a safe area for you to meet with your family after the ceremony. Please note that graduates will be exiting through the north entrance, while guests will leave through the north and northwest entrances. So plan to meet on Moritz Plaza, not at an entrance in order to keep the traffic moving.
