APU expects above average vehicle and pedestrian traffic on campus during graduation. To ensure the safety and convenience of our community and guests, please review the Commencement Parking Map for directions on where to park and which parking areas are limited or closed. Most guests will park on APU’s West Campus parking lots.
Shuttle Service from West Campus Parking
Parking is available at APU’s West Campus parking lots. APU will provide shuttle services using the campus trolleys to transport guests and graduates to and from West Campus and the main commencement entrance at Citrus College. Pick-up and drop-off on West Campus will be south of the Felix Event Center. Pick-up and drop-off at Citrus College will be just east of the Citrus College Campus Safety building (north of APU’s Cougar Stadium).
Handicap parking is available on APU’s East Campus, in parking lot A (view on the campus map). Guests and graduates are encouraged to bring wheelchairs or other mobility devices if needed. APU is unable to provide these devices.
Assistance to Ceremony from Parking
Due to the large amount of guests and graduates, guests should anticipate walking long distances. APU’s Department of Campus Safety is available to provide assistance to guests and graduates with transportation from parking lots on passenger golf carts. Due to limited availability, please reserve these golf carts for those who need assistance.
