Most colleges and universities in the U.S. find on-campus parking a real challenge, especially during special events such as commencement.  At PLNU, parking is limited but may be supplemented by utilizing public streets adjacent to the main campus.  Several large parking lots on-site are available as well.  Public Safety personnel will be on hand to direct traffic.  Information on parking may be obtained at the university entrance.  RVs and motor homes are not allowed on the main campus.

Parking for those with special needs is handled by the Department of Public Safety, with shuttle service available as needed to the Greek Amphitheatre.  PLEASE NOTE: A valid Persons with Disabilities vehicle license or placard that is clearly displayed on the vehicle is required in order to park in the lot designated for persons with special needs.


Shuttle Service

Point Loma Nazarene University will be running two 48-passenger charter buses between Main Campus and our Liberty Station location (2600 Laning Road).  Both buses will be doing loops in 30 minute intervals between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Commencement Day.  The pickup/drop-off point at Liberty Station will be identified by signage at the northeast corner of the conference center.  The pickup/dropoff point at the main campus will be the Dupont Street gate between Evans and Cabrillo Hall.

For those who will be parking on-campus, there will be two shuttle vans and six carts making continuous loops around campus and stopping at each parking area to pickup and drop-off guests.


Restroom Facilities

Restroom facilities are located throughout the campus.  Signs will be posted for your convenience.



The bookstore, located in Nicholson Commons, will be open on commencement day from 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.  Click here to visit our website.
