All graduates and guests shall park in the Alumni Coliseum parking lot. ADA parking will be in the Whitlock and Mattox Lots located in the upper left side of Alumni Coliseum (by the water tower). Overflow parking will be at the Center for the Arts. Transportation service from the overflow lot to Alumni Coliseum will be provided.
Alternate Directions to Campus:
EXIT 90 – Motorists coming to the event are reminded that Richmond and the EKU campus can be accessed from I-75 via either Exit 90 or Exit 87. Those taking Exit 90 can either come through downtown or take the by-pass that virtually encircles the city and leads eventually to the campus.
US 25/421 – EKU can also be accessed from US 25/421 or KY 52 (Lancaster Road/Irvine Road). Roy and Sue Kidd Way (the campus street that runs in front of the football stadium) will be closed from the Eastern By-Pass to Van Hoose Drive to facilitate pedestrian safety.
Guest seating will be on a first-come-first-serve basis in the Baptist Health Arena in Alumni Coliseum. In the unlikely event that we reach guest capacity due to fire code, overflow seating will be available at the EKU Center for the Arts (located across from Alumni Coliseum at 828 Hall Drive) where the ceremony will be live-streamed.
Family members and friends who are unable to attend EKU’s Commencement may view the ceremony via the Internet. A link to the live stream will be available on the main EKU webpage the day of Commencement.
Professional photography will be provided. Candidates will be photographed walking across the stage. Proofs and information from the Photographer will be sent to the student’s EKU email address approximately one week following the ceremony.
