Commencement Parking Procedures
Parking: Please be courteous to our fellow Grizzlies as you park at Maverik Center. We have another graduation after ours, and those guests will be arriving as we leave. In case there is an issue, Maverik Center has suggested we use their overflow parking to the northeast (kitty corner) from Maverik Center. For families needing handicap accessible parking, it’s better to park in Maverik Center parking. Both lots are best accessed from 3100 S, on the north side of the Maverik property. You can access 3100 S directly from Bangerter Highway, or Redwood Rd, but not from I215. DO NOT PARK IN the SPS lot across the street from Maverik. They will tow your vehicle, and they have security diligently checking their lot. There is also a TRAX station - please check routes and schedules to make sure you arrive on time.
Once you are parked, you should plan on at least 15 min to walk in, pass security, and find your seat.
We look forward to sharing this celebration with you and your graduate! Thank you for being familiar with this information and working with us on creating a positive and memorable experience for all involved.
