As the University of Waterloo responds to the COVID-19 pandemic, the well-being of our students, their families, and our campus community is our top priority. It is with great disappointment that we will not be holding any in-person ceremonies in June 2020. These are extraordinary times, and we do not make this decision lightly. Please refer to the convocation home page for more details.

On-campus parking is free in selected lots during convocation; permits are not required for convocation guests. Signs will be posted one to two weeks before convocation and every effort will be made to direct guests to parking areas as close as possible to the site of the ceremony.

Note: Parking is not available close to the building. Guests with mobility concerns can be dropped off at the ground-floor-level door located beside the steps to the south entrance of the Physical Activities Complex.

Information for drivers of electric cars can be found here
