Commencement Parking Guidelines
With two commencement ceremonies on Saturday, May 01, 2021, parking on campus will be limited. To avoid creating additional challenges we ask that if possible all graduates and guests travel to campus in one vehicle. The gates for the first ceremony will open at 7:30 am and open for the second ceremony will open at 12:30 pm. Separate parking passes will be issued to graduates and employees with tickets for each ceremony. Those who are mobility impaired and require special parking accommodations must have a parking pass and have a state issued handicap placard or 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 2021 Commencement service.
King University will provide complimentary shuttle service to and from the handicap parking area 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 are available by filling out the Mobility-Impaired Commencement Parking Form.
