Parking

Your high school should communicate parking directions. Guests should use visitor parking in Lots 3 and 4 in addition to the Frog Alley Parking Garage.

A limited amount of parking for accessible-needs and for school dignitaries may be found in Lot 6 or Lot 1, depending on arrangements your school makes with TCU. Please speak with your high school about specific directions for your graduation.

Visit maps.tcu.edu for an interactive visual representation of these areas.

Seating

Families and friends will use the main stadium entrance to access Schollmaier Arena. Graduates will follow school instructions to enter using one of the Amon G. Carter Football Stadium gates (unless otherwise noted).

Your high school should provide specific instructions for special seating accommodations. Otherwise, seats are first-come, first-serve. Please do not hold seating in large amounts using blankets, tape, etc. There is not a bad view of the stage.

ADA-accessible seating is available on the entrance-level to Schollmaier Arena. Upon entering any “portal” (vomitorium) into the seating bowl, ADA seating will be found either on your left or right. For each guest that needs accessible seating, TCU allows one companion. TCU does not provide wheelchairs.

On the concourse, there are snack and drink vending machines and drinking fountains.
