A barrier-Free entrance and barrier-free seating for graduates, guests, and faculty/staff marchers is provided on the lower level of the Sports Arena. Guests requiring barrier-free access should enter the arena at the doors closest to the parking lot (signs will direct you). Once you enter, an usher will direct you to seating. Please arrive as early as possible for your ceremony. Both the Sports Arena and the Campbell Student Union house elevators.
An American Sign Language hearing interpreter will sign each ceremony and be seated by the stage. The hearing interpreter will also be visible on the large simulcast-viewing screens near the stage and visible throughout the Sports Arena, as well as on the screen for livestream viewing in the Campbell Student Union Social Hall. Closed captioning will be provided on the livestream via YouTube, and will be linked on the commencement website on commencement day.
Graduates or guests who prefer to be seated close to the hearing interpreter can request special seating arrangements by emailing the Events Management Office, calling (716) 878-6114, or requesting seating assistance by asking an usher on commencement day.
Large-print copies of the commemorative program will be available upon request. Please email the Events Management Office or call (716) 878-6114 within a week prior to the ceremony if you would like a copy for Commencement day. You also may contact the office any time after Commencement to request a large-print program.
Shuttle van service begins at 7:30 a.m. transporting guests from Cleveland Circle to the Sports Arena vicinity for those who require assistance. This service will run to the end of the evening ceremony. Signage will direct you.
