IPFW's Commencement ceremony is held in the Arena area of the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum. Directions and maps to the Coliseum and other information on the facility can be found on the Coliseum web site.
Parking at the Coliseum is $5 and cash only.
Allow adequate time for travel and parking. Traffic on the streets surrounding the Coliseum will be gridlocked for the 30 minutes prior to the start of the ceremony.
Use the main Rotunda doors to enter the Coliseum. Access the upper lobby area using the escalator, stairs, or elevator (located behind the escalator).
Ushers and signage will direct you to the guest seating area above the arena floor. We ask guests to go directly to the seating area as the student assembly area becomes very crowded very quickly and organizers have very little space or time to marshal the students.
