Parking During Commencement Advice for Staff and Faculty


Everyone’s getting ready for Commencement 2019! In fact, some smaller ceremonies are already happening.

The vast majority of students, though, will be switching their tassels from right to left on June 14-16 at either the Pavilion or the Mondavi Center. That means, if you are staff and faculty and want to have the easiest commute possible, you may wish to avoid the following parking areas on those days:

Three tips to minimize impact on these days:

  1. Plan to park in a different lot ahead of time. Even if it’s farther away than you normally park, it may be worth the extra steps to have easier access to your car if needed.
  2. Don’t drive on those days. Instead, try out the Solano ExpressUnitrans if you live in Davis, bike if you like to ride, or try out Zimride and carpool with a colleague.
  3. If your position facilitates it, these might be great days to work remotely.
