Accessible Parking

Accessible parking is available at convocation venues. An accessibility placard or license plate is required to park in these areas. For more information about accessible parking, please contact  ASU Parking and Transportation Services online or at 480-965-6407.  For the Ceremonies on the Tempe Campus, click the venue where the ceremony is located and you will be provided the ADA Courtesy Shuttle Map which illustrates all the ADA parking options.

After the Ceremony

Be advised: Multiple convocation ceremonies will take place May 8-13 on all campuses in addition to other events occurring in the same general areas. If you attend a convocation ceremony on the Tempe campus and plan to enjoy campus or visit the surrounding area afterward, please move your car to a location outside of Lot 59 (Desert Financial Arena) or Lot 3 (ASU Gammage Auditorium). This will allow other families and friends attending other events at these locations to find convenient parking. We encourage guests to check out the Downtown Tempe local shops and restaurants where there are a wide variety of parking options available.

Large attendance at ceremonies in Desert Financial Arena and Mountain America Stadium will create traffic around these venues. Exiting parking lots and parking structures will be delayed. Your patience and cooperation is appreciated.
