For Your Guests

Please Be Aware

Several highways leading to and around campus are currently undergoing significant construction (TX-183, TX-114, Loop 12, and Spur 482). Exits and access routes may be closed or altered. Mobile map applications do not always adjust to these changes or closures. Please use caution and be prepared to use alternate routes when approaching campus.

Offsite Parking

Parking is available for free on campus on a first come first served basis. To see the various parking lots and their proximity to Braniff Mall (where the ceremony will be held), please view our campus map. There are many parking lots for guests on campus. We recommend allowing sufficient time to park and walk to the mall to be seated. When campus parking is filled, offsite parking has been made graciously available at the NCH Headquarters parking lot at 2727 Chemsearch Blvd., Irving. Safety officers will guide guests to find this parking once the campus parking is full. Buses and shuttles will be available to transport those not easily able to walk to campus and drop them off at Lynch Circle by the Tower. The buses and shuttles will transport people back to the parking lot at the NCH Headquarters after the Commencement is finished.
