Allow plenty of time for parking on the day of graduation. Campus Safety Officers will be directing traffic prior to and immediately following commencement. Guests are asked to use the Field House entrance for access to the ceremony.

Detour to Campus

Currently, the Highland Road bridge will is closed long-term due to construction on a brand-new interchange.

  • Turn right onto Mequon Rd
  • Turn left onto Lake Shore Dr
  • Lake Shore Dr turns into Highland Rd

Graduates who anticipate having guests with limited mobility or wheelchairs are encouraged to use our handicapped accessible Administration Entrance. Guests can be dropped off adjacent to the door and the vehicle can be parked in lot A or B. Guests would proceed to the public elevator in Rinker Hall across from Rinker 118. The elevator will take them to level “B” and they can proceed to the Field House. This will enable our guests to use our dry and protected building for entry and exit. Guests will also avoid the need to maneuver around vehicles when attempting to exit the campus after graduation. Please see the Campus Parking Map for lot and building locations.
