PARKING FOR GRADUATES AND GUESTS
Graduates and guests can park in several large lots near the Xfinity Center. To accommodate those who have difficulty walking, we'll operate shuttles to the center from the parking lots.
Graduates can request special-needs parking accommodations for themselves and their guests during the RSVP process. Parking spaces will be reserved in the Terrapin Trail Garage adjacent to the Xfinity Center for holders of government-issued disabled parking plates and placards, along with anyone granted a special parking accommodation. (We will mail parking passes to the graduate only.)
You should anticipate heavy traffic around the Xfinity Center, and we encourage you to carpool. We expect about 1,200 graduates and 10,000 guests to attend each ceremony.
