Traffic/Parking Advisory: High School Graduations

An increase in visitors to campus is expected June 6 to 8

Motorists should allow extra time for travel and parking on Duke's campus June 6 to 8 due to graduation ceremonies being held for local schools.

With many visitors coming to Duke, heavy traffic is expected and limited parking will be available on West Campus and in PGIV, also known as the Bryan Center parking garage. Duke faculty, staff and students with parking permits for West Campus lots and garages will have normal access to permitted parking areas but are encouraged to use Duke's buses to get around West Campus to avoid delays due to limited parking space availability.

Beginning June 6, rehearsals and graduation ceremonies will be in Page Auditorium and Cameron Indoor Stadium.
