  • Ticket Information

    Tickets are not required to attend.

  • Directions to UIW main campus
    • The Convocation Center is located on the back of the campus, across the bridge, adjacent to the Natatorium and right next to the football field.
    • From 281: Take the Hildebrand exit and turn east on to Hildebrand. Drive east on Hildebrand until you reach the first intersection to the campus (there will be a traffic signal). Turn left onto the campus and immediately turn left again. Follow the street, turning right at the dead-end. You will come to a stop sign in front of the parking garage. Cross the bridge in front of you and follow the street until you see a large building to your right (the Natatorium) and a large building in front of you (the Convocation Center).
  • Area Hotels
    Please find a list of hotels that offer special/reduced rates to UIWRSO students, families, and guests. 
  • Parking

    We do anticipate challenges with traffic and parking. To help mitigate this issue, Main Campus has coordinated a Shuttle service before and after the commencement ceremony which will run from the Ancira Garage (building #48 on campus map) to the Convocation Center (building #52 on campus map). As another option, there should also be some available parking in front of the Administration Building (#12 on campus map). However, there will be no shuttle service from the administration building parking lots to the Convocation Center.

    To ensure our grads are on time for Class Photos we advise everyone to get to campus early to find parking.
