At any given time there may be construction on the several highways leading to and around campus (TX-183, TX-114, Loop 12, and Spur 482).  As such, exits and access routes may be closed or altered.  Please use caution and be prepared to use alternate routes when approaching campus.   Mobile map applications do not always adjust to these changes or closures.

Offsite Parking

Parking is available for free on campus on a first come first serve 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 guests to and from campus before and after commencement.

ADA Drop-Off

Guests requiring additional assistance can be dropped off directly outside Cardinal Farrell Hall at 2815 Lynch Circle.
