Convocation Parking

Campus parking lots may be used at no charge during the University Commencement and College Convocation ceremonies. Please see the commencement parking map to view parking lot locations, campus shuttle, and Utah Transit Authority (UTA) TRAX train stops. Because campus parking is limited, we encourage the use of UTA TRAX as you plan to attend these events. The use of TRAX while on campus is free both days, but fare is still required for any off-campus travel.
