With the construction of Upper Campus Way -- the new access to campus opening this fall -- and the resulting closures of Parking Lots G and C, getting around campus during graduation will be different this year.
Graduate and guest parking will be directed to Lots F and H, with shuttle services available in both lots to help guests move from those locations to the gymnasium.
The walk from Lot H to the gymnasium is approximately 5 to 8 minutes, so the shuttle is a good option for those unable walk moderate distances. However, many will find this is a very reasonable distance and not need to use the shuttle service.

Complimentary parking on June 7 and 8
Parking is complimentary for all graduates and their guests on Thursday, June 7 and Friday, June 8. This is courtesy of UBC Okanagan Parking Services.
Shuttle service details
A shuttle service for those with mobility issues will be located on University Way in front of Lot F. This service will use golf carts to move people to the front entrance of the gymnasium.
The shuttle service location in Lot H will use vans to move people to the front entrance of the gymnasium and is for anyone attending a graduation ceremony.
There is no charge for either of the shuttle services during graduation.
