Parking & Shuttles
Because of limited parking near the Commencement site and on the village streets, remote parking at the Mitchell Recreation and Athletics Center is a necessity. Shuttle buses and courtesy carts will be running on Friday starting at noon and Saturday starting at 9 a.m. and immediately following the Commencement ceremony to transport guests to and from their vehicles. Carts and shuttle buses will run between designated “Shuttle Stop” areas on campus and in the village. Denison is unable to provide shuttle bus service to and from Port Columbus International Airport and other off-campus locations.
Special-Needs Parking: Seniors will be notified about procedures to follow to accommodate family members or guests who need special consideration. Even if your car already has a handicapped sticker, your graduate must make arrangements to put your name(s) on the Commencement parking list. Courtesy carts will be available to assist family members from parking areas to event venues. Designated areas near the Commencement ceremony venue will be restricted for special needs parking and easy drop-off of special-needs guests near the seating area (vehicles identified by a “Special Needs” card issued by the Office of the President). Once parked, notify a courtesy cart attendant for assistance in moving from your car to the Fine Arts Quad.
