Access and Seating for the Mobility Impaired

Plan to arrive early for the best seating availability.

Graduate Ceremony

Mobility impaired guests can be dropped off in the loop outside the SERC main entrance. Guests may use the main entrance or the side entrance to enter the Field House. Drivers can park in Lots V or V-1. Handicapped parking spaces are available in Lot V.

We have ample floor seating for guests with wheelchairs, walkers or other mobility concerns.

Undergraduate Ceremonies 

Mobility impaired guests can be dropped off in the loop outside the SERC main entrance. The loop will close at the end of the ceremony and reopen once the roadway is cleared. Guests may use the main entrance to enter the SERC Field House. Drivers can park in lots V or V-1. There will be limited handicapped parking available in lot V for cars with official handicap identification.

For guests with wheelchairs, walkers, or other mobility impairments that are unable to navigate the bleachers, ground-level seating will be available. This seating is limited, and we ask that our mobility impaired guests choose one family member to accompany them in the reserved seating. This seating is first come, first served.

Interpreting Services for the Deaf

Interpreting services will be provided at the ceremony. Two large video screens on either side of the stage will enhance your ceremony viewing.

Deaf students working with Student Accessibility Services may contact their office at (585) 395-5409 or sasoffice@brockport.edu regarding specific arrangements. Deaf faculty, staff, and visitors who need consultation regarding more specific interpreting accommodations may contact the Office of Affirmative Action at (585) 395-2126.
