Getting to Clark
On Commencement day, designated parking lots will be available for guests, faculty, staff, students, and vendors.
Guests with mobility challenges can reserve a spot in the Charlotte Street parking lot, which comprises 30 spots. Please email Amanda Elinoff at University Police to make your reservation. You will be required to show confirmation of your reservation when you arrive at the Charlotte Street lot.
If you plan to drop off guests with mobility challenges before you park, we suggest doing so on Woodland Street, next to Atwood Hall.
Visitors may receive timely emergency alerts during Commencement by texting Clark2022 to 226787. Current Clark faculty, staff, and students do not need to opt in to receive these alerts.
All visitors to the Clark University campus are expected to be fully vaccinated or to have received a negative COVID-19 test result within 72 hours of the event. Clark University does not currently have a mask requirement on campus and does not plan to require masks at this event. This is subject to change, and we ask that all attendees be prepared to wear a mask should it become mandatory.
We encourage mask-wearing in the Kneller Athletic Center for the Graduate Ceremony.
For guests attending the ceremonies, view our seating information.
