Where do I park?
Commencement parking [PDF] is available in all WPI lots, streets surrounding campus, and other adjacent lots. Beginning at 8:00 AM, shuttle vans and cars dropping off guest will do so at the designated area (please see parking map) along Institute Road, by Morgan Hall and the new Recreation Center. Cars will not be entering the Quad area, as many pedestrians are in that area. Shuttle buses will transport guest from these lots to the designated drop-off area for Commencement and return them to the parking lots following the ceremony.
What are the arrangements for handicap parking?
If you or your guests are physically challenged, we will use a golf-cart type vehicle to assist you to a special seating area. There are limited parking spaces adjacent to the campus for handicapped drivers; these lots will be monitored, and are located in the Einhorn Lot, Daniels Hall Lot, and West Street Lot. We will have student ushers available to provide guest with transport and assistance to the handicap seating area.
Commencement Pick-up: Due to the large numbers of pedestrians on the Quad at the conclusion of the Commencement ceremony, cars are not permitted to enter this area. Guest may be picked-up at any of the surrounding areas or streets. We suggest the following options:
- The corner of Institute Road and Morgan Hall, by the Recreation Center.
- The Park Avenue Parking Garage Turn-a-Round area.
