Attendees are welcome to ride the Campus Shuttles for free. Two shuttle routes will be in service to transport guests directly to the Huntsman Center and Kingsbury. Guests may ride the shuttle from the Eccles Broadcast Lot to the Huntsman Center, and from the Merrill Engineering Lot to Kingsbury Hall. Visit uofubus.com to track all shuttle routes live.

Public Transit

Parking on campus is limited, which is why attendees are encouraged to ride UTA instead. The Huntsman Center is within walking distance from South Campus TRAX Station and other UTA bus stops. Visit rideuta.com to view transit routes and schedules.



From May 4 at 5:00 a.m. to May 7 at 5:00 a.m., all westbound lanes on 500 South (from Guardsman Way to 1300 East) will be closed. There will be lane shifts on 500 South and Foothill Drive that will cause congestion and slower moving traffic. Be sure to plan your commutes to campus accordingly.

Please be aware the Stadium Lot will not be available from May 4 to May 7 due to another scheduled event on campus.
