Special Needs Seating & Parking 

All general admission seating is located in the bleacher section of the Sewall Center Arena. Individuals with special needs and older adults may find this type of seating inaccessible. Those who should request special needs seating or parking can include:

  • Visually impaired
  • Hearing impaired
  • Wheelchair
  • Unable to walk long distances
  • Unable to climb stairs

We will make every effort to accommodate you for the ceremony.

Student Life is accepting special needs requests.  Deadline to apply online is April 28th.  After April 28th, Special Needs Seating and parking permits are still available. However, due to a time factor in receiving the tickets, graduates must contact Nancy Thomas in Student Life Office at 412-397-4352 to submit their request and to make arrangements to pick up the tickets before Wednesday, May 4th at 5:00pm. 

If you or your guests require special accommodations, please visit the Office of Student Life in the Nicholson Center or call 412-397-4352 to register.

Because seating is limited, please make reservations in advance. Please note that guests seated in the special needs reserved seating area must have special needs passes for either ceremony. 

Those with government-issued handicapped parking placards should still request special needs parking to ensure enough spaces are reserved. Commencement ceremony passes are required for guests seated in the Special Needs Reserved Seating area. Due to space limitations, only one family member may accompany a guest sitting in the Special Needs Reserved Seating area.
