Parking & Public Transportation
Traffic along Commonwealth Avenue can become heavily congested, and long delays should be expected. Parking spaces in West Campus can be difficult to find on Sunday in the late morning. You are strongly encouraged to arrive early, park your vehicle close to your last venue of the day and move about campus by foot, MBTA or shuttle.
Parking lots across campus will be open throughout the weekend. Typically lots east of the BU Bridge have more availability. A Commencement parking map will be available by mid-April.
Note: Due to construction, general parking will not be allowed at Babcock Street.
All lots throughout BU have accessible parking for those with disabilities. Disability parking spaces in the Agganis Arena garage are available on a first-come, first-served basis and require disability plates or placards.
Due to the anticipated traffic on Commonwealth Avenue during Commencement Weekend, you are urged to use public transportation to and from campus whenever possible.
For your convenience, the University will provide free shuttle service to stops along Commonwealth Avenue throughout the weekend.
