Assistive Listening Devices

Assistive Listening Devices will be available. No tickets are required for these devices. However, students should reserve them when completing the Registration/Order Form so that enough devices will be on hand the day of the event. On Commencement Day, the devices may be picked up on the stadium concourse in front of section 118.

Disability Parking

Students can use the Registration/Order Form to pre-purchase disability and limited mobility parking in lots close to the stadium. Vehicles displaying a state, UW, or government issued disability privilege will be able to park in campus disability stalls in any lot.

Disability Drop-off

There will be a special disability and limited mobility drop-off location just north of the stadium in front of the Tubby Graves Building.  Access to this lot is only available from the northbound lanes of Montlake Blvd. Please note that this location will be closed for approximately 30-45 minutes following the ceremony to allow traffic to dissipate.  It will then be possible to pick up your disabled or  limited mobility guests at this location.
