ADA Accommodations

  • Please email Diana Devereaux by noon on May 9 if you have a guest with accessibility needs.
    • Please note that because we have limited accessible seating in specific areas of the auditorium, we cannot always ensure that large parties can sit together, but we can reserve 1 accessible and 1 companion seat. If you have more than one person who requires accommodation, we may not be able to seat an able companion next to them.
  • Graduates or guests who require disability parking and/or seating accommodations should contact Accessibility Resources & Services well in advance at the Student and Academic Services North Building, Campus Box #7214, 919-962-0754, 711 (NC RELAY). Office hours are 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. Monday–Friday. Parking and seating accommodation credentials will be issued through this office. Graduates and guests with disability license plates or hangtags should also request a Commencement 2018 Disability Parking Permit to ensure appropriate access.
