Commencement Parking

Commencement Parking Guidelines

With more than 3,000 people expected on our Campus on Saturday, April 28, 2018 we know that parking will be challenging. Parking on campus will be limited, so those who are mobility impaired and require special parking accommodations must register to obtain a commencement parking permit to park on campus. Please note that parking permits issued by King University Security Office and are only valid for the 2018 Commencement service.

King University will provide complimentary shuttle service to and from the baseball field, soccer field, and tennis courts parking areas to the Oval every 5–10 minutes, starting at 8 a.m. and running into the afternoon.

Special needs parking is available, and in addition to government-issued handicapped parking placards. Registration for commencement mobility impaired parking permits is available at http://www.king.edu/security/parking/specialeventparking/mobility-impaired-parking.aspx.
