Ellensburg Parking Information

General Parking: Guests should park in lots S10, Q14, P8, W12, X12, and V7. Graduates should park in lots G, H, and I located east of the SURC. Please refer to Parking Services’ parking map for additional information. Parking may be scarce. If you live nearby, we encourage you to walk. If you will need to park, plan for time to search for a space and to make it through Commencement traffic to campus. All non-residence lots are available for parking without permits starting Saturday morning. If you are traveling from the Westside over Snoqualmie Pass, please allow at least 2 additional hours for traffic due to construction.

Motor homes or campers are not allowed to park overnight in any of the lots. If they are just here for the day of graduation, please park in the north end of lot V-7. For oversized motor homes, parking on 18th Street may be a little easier.

Disabled parking is available outside of the stadium (Lots X-12 & W-12). Only persons with state approved disabled parking permits are allowed to utilize this parking area.

To ensure the safety of everyone in attendance, all CWU Commencement ceremonies are clear-bag only. No regular bags, backpacks or totes will be allowed inside of the stadium. Small purses are permitted.
