During this very busy weekend of June 15–16, access routes onto campus, parking lots, and structures may be intermittently closed due to traffic or event control. Vehicles parked in the areas listed will be allowed to leave; attendants will direct drivers to specific exits and re-entry may be denied.
Road and parking lot closures are subject to change.
UC San Diego community members planning to be on campus Saturday or Sunday, but not attending the ceremonies, are advised to enter campus from Gilman Drive or Villa La Jolla Drive for the least restricted access.
If you are attending a ceremony, plan to arrive one to two hours prior to the start of your ceremony to allow ample time to park and walk or shuttle, where offered, to RIMAC Field or RIMAC Arena. Keep in mind that traffic will be heavy leaving campus after the ceremonies as well. Allow for one to two hours to depart from campus. Please follow all event signage and directions of traffic management staff for access to the best available parking or drop-off locations.
We urge all commencement attendees to carpool, ride-share, or use public
transportation. Parking will be extremely limited. To learn more about
transportation options available on the day of the All Campus
