Parking instructions for faculty and staff on Commencement Day, May 16

A guest post from Executive Vice President Hof MilamWait Chapel

Dear Reynolda Campus Faculty and Staff:

Commencement is the highlight of our academic year. It is a wonderful time for the campus community to come together and celebrate with graduating students and their families. This year’s commencement ceremony will be held Monday, May 16, on Hearn Plaza, beginning at 9 a.m.

It is always important for us to be gracious hosts to our visitors and make sure their access to campus is as easy as possible. To make this the best commencement experience possible for our graduates and guests, please observe the following guidelines:

Faculty and staff should not attempt to park on campus prior to 1 p.m. on the day of commencement. Passes, which have been issued to graduates and their families, will be required for all cars entering campus.

Faculty and staff who need parking should park at the Joel Coliseum and ride the shuttle to campus. Enter the coliseum parking lot via University Parkway or Deacon Boulevard. The shuttle pickup point will be located in front of the Joel Coliseum near the flagpoles. Shuttles will run continuously throughout the day from 5:30 a.m. until 6 p.m.

Faculty and staff may park on campus after 1 p.m.

Reynolda Campus staff who do not have a direct commencement responsibility need not report for work until 9:30 a.m. on Monday, unless otherwise required by their department. Please use the provided shuttle service from the Joel Coliseum.

Please have your Wake Forest I.D. with you at all times on campus during commencement.

In case of rain, the commencement ceremony will be held at Joel Coliseum, beginning at 9:30 a.m. Parking on campus will not be affected if the ceremony is held at the Coliseum.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
