Commencement

Parking and Traveling to Campus

The Hinkle Fieldhouse parking lot (adjacent to the Butler Bowl entrance) will be available for Commencement guests. 

Butler Annex parking lot (located at the intersection of 52nd and Boulevard Place) will be reserved for those individuals who have a state-issued disability placard or a Butler University issued permit. This is to allow for easy access to the North East Gate of the Butler Bowl for access to the reserved accessible seating. 

The Butler University Bookstore provides a courtesy golf cart shuttle from the university campus. The golf cart shuttle will make a loop through campus before dropping guests off at the entrance to the Butler Bowl. 

Parking Shuttle

Parking is available in other campus lots and all are within walking distance to Hinkle Fieldhouse and the Butler Bowl. A complimentary shuttle will be in operation on commencement day.  To view a map of the shuttle route and available parking, download a PDF HERE.

Traveling to Campus

The recommended routes when traveling to campus for the commencement ceremony include entering campus from the south via Clarendon Road or from the north via 49th Street. Due to the Streetscape improvement project, Sunset Avenue will be limited to northbound traffic only. Shuttles are available throughout campus to take guests to the Butler Bowl. Additional information regarding parking and shuttles is posted on the commencement website.
