Commencement Parking

Commencement Parking Guidelines

With a large number of people expected on campus for graduation, we know that parking will be challenging. To better accommodate guests, parking on campus will be first come first serve and is limited. Additionally, to ensure everyone arriving on campus is directed to the best possible parking, all gates except the Carmack Entrance on East State Street/King College Road across from the fire department will be closed. Signs posted at each entrance will direct guests to the Carmack gate.

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, beginning at 8 a.m. and continuing into the afternoon.

Special needs parking is available to individuals with government-issued handicapped parking placards. Those who are mobility impaired and require special needs parking accommodations that do not have a state handicap placard must register to obtain a special needs parking permit for King Commencement. Registration for the Commencement mobility impaired parking permits is available at MOBILITY-IMPAIRED COMMENCEMENT PARKING FORM. Please note that special needs parking permits are issued by King University Security Department and are valid for the 2024 Commencement service only.
