Commencement Parking Permits


The commencement ceremonies require a special commencement parking permit to park on campus.  Each commencement ceremony will have their own unique special commencement parking permit that will only be valid on its designated date. Each graduate will receive up to three (3) parking permits. Graduates can obtain parking permits beginning at GradFest. After GradFest, parking permits will be available directly from the Parking & Transportation Services Department located in the Student and Faculty Support Building, SF-140 from March 27, 2023 to May 5, 2023. 

Vehicles with a DMV-issued Disabled Persons Parking Placard or license plate must also have a special commencement parking permit to park on campus. 


The special commencement parking permits are not replaceable if lost or stolen.   


Note: Graduates and guests should anticipate traffic delays, especially on Mission Boulevard. Please allow extra time for travel. The graduate and guests will need this special parking permit to park on campus during commencement. Normal parking permits will not work. Carpooling is strongly suggested.

CSUEB Shuttle Updates


 Beginning Monday, February 20th Shuttles to/from Hayward BART will be temporarily reduced:

Please be advised due to driver availability there will  only be two shuttles serving the Hayward BART location instead of three. As a result shuttles may reach capacity at certain times of the day, especially in the morning and evening times. Please prepare a back up plan just in case. For example: plan on arriving at least one shuttle earlier, use alternative transit, etc.  Again we expect this reduction to be temporary and we appreciate your patience and understanding. Please email us at if you have any questions or concerns.

Please note, Shuttles will not run on Friday, March 31st, campus is closed for Cesar Chavez Day.

Campus Drive Traffic Calming Project



The purpose of the project is to identify pedestrian, bicycle, and traffic calming improvements to address traffic safety concerns and mobility needs in the corridor that are supported by the community.



The Campus Drive Traffic Calming Project spans 0.78 miles of Campus Drive between 2nd Street and Hayward Boulevard. The area is served by multiple neighborhoods, California State University East Bay, hiking trails, churches, senior facility, and Fire Station 9. Hayward identified Campus Drive as a priority corridor for traffic calming improvements based on community concerns, traffic volume, speed and collision data, and other factors. The purpose of the project is to identify pedestrian, bicycle, and traffic calming improvements to address traffic safety concerns and mobility needs in the corridor that are supported by the community.


The pilot program on Campus Drive will temporarily close off the second southbound lane between Oakes Drive and Highland Blvd using flexible posts to determine the feasibility of permanently removing the second lane and making Campus Drive a two-lane street. Attachment A shows a graphical drawing of the pilot program on Campus Drive. The pilot program will last a duration of two (2) months to provide sufficient time to monitor traffic along the corridor. After the completion of the pilot program, the City will prepare a traffic evaluation to present to the community for further feedback on the next steps.
