124th Commencement Exercises: Thursday, May 12, 2011


On Commencement Day, there is extremely high traffic congestion and parking volume. Please plan accordingly.

Option 1: Take Public Transportation

Temple students and faculty alike have taken a sustainability pledge. Join the movement and take SEPTA to this year's celebration.

Temple University is a stop on many local public transportation routes.

Broad Street Subway
All local Broad Street subway trains stop at Cecil B. Moore Station (Broad Street and Cecil B. Moore Avenue).

The "4" and "16" buses stop on Broad Street at Cecil B. Moore Avenue, Montgomery Avenue, Polett Walk (Berks Mall) and Norris Street.

The "3" bus stops on Cecil B. Moore Avenue from 11th Street to Broad Street.

The "23" bus stops on 12th Street (southbound) and 11th Street (northbound) at Polett Walk (Berks Mall), Montgomery Avenue and Cecil B. Moore Avenue.

SEPTA Regional Rail Lines
All lines stop at Temple University Station, 10th and Berks Streets.

Option 2: Drive or Carpool

If you use Google maps to find Main Campus, be sure to use this address: 1801 North Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA 19122.

Due to traffic congestion and parking volume, please allow extra time to park prior to ceremonies and carpool, if possible. Parking Services has designated assigned parking areas for each school and college. Each graduate will receive a complimentary parking pass with their graduation packet. Schools will advise graduates and guests which parking area(s) to use. Please adhere to these parking assignments. All university parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis. If your assigned parking area is full upon arrival, you will be directed to an overflow area as long as spaces are available.

NOTE: The Broad Street entrance of the Liacouras Center is NOT a drop off or pick up location. Police will not permit vehicles to stop on Broad Street so please familiarize yourself with the other accessible entrances to the facility.
