PARKING ON CAMPUS
Free parking is available for Commencement at all University surface lots and garages. We suggest that you park in any UA visitor parking garage, surface lots south of 6th Street, or north of the UA Mall in order to avoid traffic congestion and parking confusion. Distance to Arizona Stadium from these areas is a pleasant walk or you may take UA Cat Tran shuttle service or UA golf cart service.
UA Cat Tran shuttle service will be provided from 5:00pm until 10:00pm. UA Cat Tran drop off for the event is on the south side of Arizona Stadium. Pedicabs will be stationed at every garage, on the UA Mall, and around Main Gate Square beginning at approximately 1:00pm. To make reservations for pick-ups, please call:
Big Papa Human Powered Transportation 602-618-6702
University Pedicabs 602-469-3954
Disabled parking will be available in Cherry Avenue Garage.
