Traffic detours planned during WFU commencement

Wake Forest University will be closed to through traffic during its commencement ceremony on Monday, May 21, from 7 a.m. until the ceremony ends around noon.

Parking passes and tickets are required to enter campus and attend commencement. Tickets and passes are reserved for graduates and their guests.

Anyone not attending commencement should plan routes around the campus.

For commencement traffic, both lanes at the campus’ University Parkway entrance will be one-way for entering traffic before the ceremony and for exiting traffic afterward. The Reynolda Road and Polo Road entrances to campus will remain open for two-way commencement traffic during the event.

Parking on campus is limited on commencement morning. Anyone attending commencement is encouraged to use the university’s shuttle service, which will provide continuous transportation to and from parking lots at Groves Stadium and the First Assembly of God from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

University employees are encouraged to car pool and park in the off-campus locations.
