Traffic and Parking Updates

Case Western Reserve University is pleased to welcome graduates, their families and other guests to campus this week.

To help ensure that everyone has the most positive experience possible, we strongly encourage planning ahead for potential delays—on roadways, and in securing parking.

Those attending Convocation or any of the diploma ceremonies should arrive at least one hour prior to their start times to allow for traffic, parking time, and walking to the venues.

Please visit this site on the eve of the event you plan to attend, as circumstances may change in the coming days.


The University Convocation starts at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 15 in the Veale Convocation, Recreation, and Athletic Center. Please be advised Convocation is only for the campus community (students, faculty, and staff)
