first_img Published: Aug. 2, 2000 The 5,000 people expected to attend the University of Colorado at Boulder’s commencement exercises Aug. 12 at 8:30 a.m. in the historic Norlin Quadrangle are strongly urged to plan for an early arrival. Free parking will be available in the Euclid Avenue Autopark, Lot 204 off 18th Street and Broadway, Lot 308 at Regent Drive and Kittredge Loop Road, and in Lot 310 off 18th Street and Wardenburg Drive. Lots 359 and 378, near Folsom Stadium, and the Regent Drive Autopark (Lot 436 on Regent Drive) also are open and free. Parking meters on campus will be free the day of commencement. People attending the ceremony should note that the meters along University Avenue are city meters and are not free and are subject to ticketing. Traffic is expected to be delayed on U.S. 36 due to construction. Those traveling from the Denver metro area should allow extra time or take an alternate route. Close-in parking for those who have difficulty walking will be in Lot 380 off University Avenue and 17th Street, but space in this area is limited. No handicapped permit is required. Access to this lot will be available for drop-off even after all spaces are occupied. Courtesy wheelchairs will be available to aid those who have difficulty walking to their seats. The city of Boulder’s local shuttle services, the HOP and the SKIP, will be in service the morning of the ceremony. They run every 10 minutes and cost 75 cents. Guests with disabilities who have questions or need additional assistance should contact the Office of Disability Services at (303) 492-8671. Other visitors with additional parking needs or parking questions should contact CU Parking and Transit Services at (303) 492-2322.
