Commencement Parking Guidelines
Parking for King University commencement ceremonies on Saturday, April 30, 2022, on the Oval. To avoid creating additional challenges we ask that if possible all graduates and guests travel to campus in one vehicle. Parking will open at 7:00 am and no parking passes will be issued to graduates or employees. Those who are mobility impaired and require special parking accommodations must have a state-issued handicap placard or register to obtain a commencement parking permit to use special needs parking. Please note that special needs parking permits issued by King University Security Office are only valid for April 30, 2022, Commencement service.
Shuttle service on campus will be provided.
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.
