Xfinity Center (Saturday and Sunday Commencements)
The center is located at 8500 Paint Branch Drive, College Park, MD 20742, on the campus of the University of Maryland, College Park. View a map of the College Park campus.
Graduates and guests can park in several large lots near the Xfinity Center. To accommodate those who have difficulty walking, we'll operate shuttles to the center from the parking lots.
As a graduate, you can request special needs parking accommodations for you and your guests when you RSVP. Parking spaces will be reserved in the Terrapin Trail Garage for holders of government-issued disabled parking plates and placards, along with anyone granted a special parking accommodation.
You should anticipate heavy traffic around the Xfinity Center, and we encourage you to carpool. We expect about 1,200 graduates and 10,000 guests to attend each of the three ceremonies.
