Request accessible seating at Commencement

Details regarding accessibility arrangements for May 2022 are likely to change.

Please read through the following information thoroughly to determine whether a request for tickets in the disabilities area is right for your friends and family.

For guests with disabilities, there are designated seating sections. If someone in your family requires special assistance, you may wish to request tickets in a disability seating section. Seating in these areas will be by reservation only and special tickets will be issued instead of the standard tickets.

Guests seated in this reserved section will need to remain seated at all times throughout the ceremonies. There will be no standing for viewing purposes allowed, as this obstructs the view of those who are unable to stand. Please keep this in mind as you determine whether a request for tickets in this area is right for your family.

Student Disability Services will have ambassadors and wheelchairs available for guests who need assistance from the drop-off area to their seats. NOTE: These chairs will be used solely to transport guests to and from the accessible seating sections. For more accessibility information, please see our list of services and resources.

To request tickets in a Disabilities Seating section, please fill out the webform below.
