Parking and Transportation
To Viejas Arena: Because some ceremonies may fill the arena to its capacity of 12,000, we are suggesting several alternate approaches to campus, making use of various parking areas.
Please allow at least 20 minutes to walk to the arena from any parking area east of College Avenue.
From east of College Avenue: Take I-8 west to College Avenue, then proceed south on College Avenue. At the first intersection of College/Alvarado Road, turn right onto Canyon Crest Drive, then west to Parking Structure 4.
From south of Montezuma Road: Take Route 94 or another east/west route to College Avenue north, then left on Montezuma Road, then right on 55th Street to Parking Structure 5.
From west of College Avenue: Take I-8 to College Avenue south, then right on Canyon Crest Drive to Parking Structure 4.
Alternate Route: Take I-8 to Fairmount Avenue, east on Montezuma Road to 55th Street, then left on 55th Street to Parking Structure 5.
SDSU will provide courtesy parking for you and your guests during commencement ceremonies. Please consult the campus map to locate parking areas.
Please do not park in residential neighborhoods. We suggest that you arrive early (and remember to note which lot you are in before leaving your car).
