6,000+ Happy Parkers for SJSU's Spring Commencement

San Jose State University’s Spring Commencement is one of the most significant events of the academic year, drawing thousands of graduates, their families, and friends to the campus.


SJSU needed a streamlined, efficient parking solution to handle the high volume of vehicles while providing a positive experience for all attendees.

“Offstreet’s solution for our Spring Commencement was a game-changer. The ability to offer customized options and clear directions made a significant difference in managing such a large event. Our guests were happier, and the entire process was much smoother.”


Previously, SJSU used an existing vendor's event module; it did not offer a seamless parking experience during the multi-day commencement event. Primary challenges included:

Poor Guest Experience

Required guests to enter unnecessary information, such as their vehicle make and model, colour, etc.

Administrative Burden

Correcting incorrect registrations, issuing refunds, and reversing citations created extra work for the parking team

Traffic Management

Lacked the ability to easily direct guests to park in certain garages, control capacity, and manage the flow of traffic to and from campus
