We recommend that guests arrive early, before each ceremony, to allow for adequate travel time from parking areas to the Commencement ceremony locations. Designated parking lots near the ceremonies and across the IUP campus will be used for commencement parking at no charge. Please see the IUP campus parking and shuttle route maps for details.

Expect increased traffic on Wayne Avenue, Oakland Avenue, and Maple Street. Local traffic is encouraged to avoid this area and find alternative routes. Check back throughout the semester for additional details.

A community communication event has been set up for spring commencement to provide students, families, and guests with general reminders, inclement weather advisories, parking updates, or emergency information. To opt in to this system, please text IUPMAYGRAD23 to 888-777.
