Special Needs

Special needs requests must be received on or before May 9, 2017.


Limited special needs seating is available. This seating is reserved for guests who have a medical reason to be out of the sun or require the assistance of a sign language interpreter. Because seating in this area is limited, only one individual may sit with the special needs guest. Be sure to arrive early for special needs seating. Should Commencement be moved indoors, both the special needs guest and the assisting individual must have a rain ticket.

The Great Lawn is a flat surface and is wheelchair accessible, therefore those with limited mobility do not need special needs access, but can sit in the regular seating on the Great Lawn. Drop off is available between York River and the David Student Union for those guests who need to be dropped off. Please follow posted signs.

Please send requests for special seating to Call (757) 594-8061 if you have any questions.


A limited number of designated handicapped parking spaces are available. Your vehicle must display an official handicapped permit.
