Commencement Relocated Heavy Traffic Expected

Published: May 04, 2004

The University of Tampa has relocated its spring commencement from the St. Pete Times Forum to the Tampa Convention Center, located at 333 S. Franklin St. in Tampa. The move was required by the likelihood of a Tampa Bay Lightning home playoff game on Saturday, May 8, the day of the University’s Commencement.


All schedules and other plans related to the 1 p.m. ceremony remain unchanged. The City Parking Department has urged that all who are attending Commencement should park in the Fort Brooke garage, next to the Hyatt.

Heavy traffic is expected downtown on Saturday due to a Tampa Bay Lightning game and other events.
