Parking on campus is limited and will be subject to traffic control by Public Safety at the time of your arrival. As such, each degree candidate who requests Commencement parking is eligible to receive two (2) parking permits. Candidates may either use the permit(s) or provide them to family or friends, but each candidate will only receive two (2) parking permits for use at Commencement. Guests are also encouraged to utilize the free VISTA bus and Roadrunner shuttle transportation from the Camarillo Metrolink Station.
Parking personnel will distribute Commencement parking permits and maps to candidates at the CI Grad Fest, March 4 and 5, 2015. After March 5, Commencement parking permits and maps will be available for pick-up at Public Safety located in Placer Hall, adjacent to the A-1 parking lot.
Candidates who require a disability parking accommodation, either for themselves or a guest, must request a separate parking credential by contacting Public Safety at 805-437-8430 no later than Friday, May 1, 2015. This credential is used in conjunction with the Commencement Parking Permit and ensures that a reasonable parking accommodation is provided to those individuals with a disability.
On the day of Commencement, only those vehicles with a University-issued Commencement Parking Permit will be allowed to park on campus. Student parking permits, student housing parking permits, day permits and other regularly issued University parking permits are not valid for Commencement.
On-campus parking for Commencement includes the University’s parking lots adjacent to the main campus facilities. Please place the Commencement Parking Permit on your dashboard prior to arriving on the campus so parking staff can quickly and efficiently direct you to appropriate parking areas.
