Directions and Parking

The JSIS Convocation Ceremony (June 11) is separate from the University Commencement. Campus parking might be unavailable on June 11, we recommend arriving by public transportation. 

Please allow sufficient additional time for parking, and walking, (where necessary) – traffic can be very congested on the day of graduation events. Graduating students must be seated by 8:45 am, but to legislate for registration, we recommend arriving by 8:15 am. For more information on parking, please visit UW Transportation Services

The University of Washington is committed to providing access and reasonable accommodation for individuals with disabilities. To request disability accommodations for a graduating student or guest, let us know when you register online or inform the Office of Academic Services when you register and specify the type of disability accommodation needed.
