Commencement 2015

Please check back regarding direction and parking updates as ongoing campus construction may impact traffic flow.


Directions to the campus, maps, and mass-transit options are available on our Visitors Dashboard.


Three lots are available for Commencement parking and two for Baccalaureate. Uniformed personnel will direct you to available parking.

All lots are accessible from Chester Road (Route 320) south and are clearly marked with directional signs.

Shuttles are provided from all parking areas.

  • DuPont Parking Lot - From Chester Road (320) south: turn right at the light on College Avenue; turn right on Cedar Avenue; go one block, turn left on Elm Avenue, then turn left on Whittier Place. Lot is at the end of Whittier Place. Please note that the DuPont lot (next to the Science Center) fills rapidly. Overflow traffic will be directed to continue south on Chester Road and park in the SEPTA lot or Field House lot. This is the best lot for people with mobility issues as golf carts are available to transport people to the various Commencement venues.
  • SEPTA Parking Lot - From Chester Road (320) south, go past the light at College Avenue. This lot is on your left, just before the SEPTA underpass. Available for Commencement only.
  • Field House Lot -  From Chester Road (320 South), go past the light at College Avenue.  Follow Chester Road down and through the SEPTA underpass. As you approach the circle at the top of the rise, bear to your right and turn right into the campus at the South Entry  (Field House  Lane).  Staff will direct you to parking areas.
