Complimentary parking is available for all who want to attend Illinois State University commencement activities. With just a few lots excepted, all parking lots around the venues will be open for commencement parking. Parking Services staffs the lots and their personnel are happy to answer questions. Look for them at the entrance of parking lots.
Please view the commencement parking map which highlights the commencement parking lots. Key features include the two buildings where commencement services are held: Redbird Arena and the Bone Student Center, along with Horton Field House, where the students will check in before their ceremonies. Three accessible parking lots are available to the west of Redbird Arena and Horton Field House, with lot entrances off the service drive. There is an accessible drop-off point just past Redbird Arena on the service drive, so it is important to remember not to drop off guests on College Avenue for safety purposes. Other key parking lots are to the north of Horton Field House with an entrance off the service drive, between College and Kingsley with an entrance off Kingsley, and to the north of the Bone Student Center with an entrance off Locust Street. Additionally, the service drive and Adelaide Street function as a one-way on the day(s) of commencement.
