mccombs safetyBackpacks, tote bags or any bags larger than 12 inches in any dimension will not be allowed into any Commencement venue. This applies to all McCombs ceremonies, as well as other schools and the university-wide commencement at the Tower.

In addition, all other bags, including purses, camera cases and diaper bags are subject to search at the college, school and departmental ceremonies. We strongly urge all attendees not to bring bags unless they are absolutely necessary. Visitors bringing smaller bags should expect delays in order to enter the venue and those with the prohibited larger bags will be turned away.


McCombs Commencement Parking

Parking for commencement activities is free in designated areas on a first-come, first-served basis. With the exception of spaces marked “At All Times,” all university parking garages as well as most surface lots are available.
