Facilities for Handicapped Guests

Parking

A special parking area in parking lot P near Firestone Fieldhouse has been designated for you. Inquire at the information booth at Seaver Drive or John Tyler Drive for specific directions. Once you arrive at the special parking area, a public safety officer will assist you with parking.

Graduation Seating

There are two seating options:

Firestone Fieldhouse -- an air-conditioned, interior space where the Commencement ceremony will livestream on the large screen.

Alumni Park -- a designated handicapped seating area, open and uncovered with spaces for wheelchairs next to chairs. Each guest in a wheelchair can bring one person to sit with them in this area. There will be golf carts coming back and forth between parking lot B and Alumni Park to do pick-ups and drop offs. Another option would be to pull up next to Alumni Park, drop off the handicapped guest, and park elsewhere. Graduation hosts will greet handicapped guests as they enter the graduation arena and assist with seating. Note: As this is not a covered canopy area, hats and use of sunscreen are recommended for your sun protection.
