Commencement Day - Campus Parking Information

May 16, 2023 1:45 PM

Campus Safety

To accommodate and welcome the family members of our graduates who are attending Commencement on Monday, May 22 (a regular workday), many campus parking lots will be reserved for guest parking. Faculty and staff are asked to park off campus in the east parking lot at New Russia Township Hall, 46300 Butternut Ridge Road, for the day.

A free shuttle service will be provided from 6 to 10 a.m. and 3 to 6 p.m. to drop passengers off and pick them up in front of Wilder Hall on West Lorain Street and in the conservatory south lot off of South Professor Street. Handicap parking credential holders may park on campus. 

We encourage local faculty and staff members to bike, walk, or carpool to campus on Monday.

For questions about the parking plan, contact Campus Safety at csafety@oberlin.edu or x58444. For emergencies or special needs, please get in touch with Campus Safety or Facility Operations.

Thank you for your continued patience and understanding as we seek ways to serve you—our valued colleagues—as well as more than 3,500 guests who will visit campus during Commencement/Reunion Weekend.­
