Campus parking for all graduation events, including department events, will require a parking permit. We highly recommend parking by Husky Stadium (lots E12, E19, E20), as it is the closest option for on-campus parking. To park off-campus, please plan to arrive early as parking can be difficult to find around the UW Campus. Metered street parking is available along N.E. Boat Street and Brooklyn Avenue N.E. 

Graduates will be able to pre-purchase parking permits ($17) from the UW Commencement page (from May 4 – May 22). If you wish to guarantee parking in a particular lot, it is recommended that you pre-purchase a permit, since some lots may sell out. Day-of-event parking permits will cost $1 more and will require that you stop at the gates to purchase the permit.
