Attendees with Disabilities and Other Needs

More information will be provided below for families with attendees with disabilities and other needs


Limited handicap parking will be available in certain designated lots for those in need of special parking. Spaces will be provided on a first-come, first served basis. When these reserved lots are full, parking will be available in the regular parking areas.  You will be directed to a lot and must have a State issued Handicap plate or placard.

There will be a campus shuttle system to transport people, with or without special needs, around the campus from the various parking lots to the Stadium throughout the day.  A single golf cart will be available for the last 20 yards from the shuttle drop-off point to the Stadium entrance for those with special needs.


Special seating is reserved on the field level for individuals who require field-level seating because of age, illness or physical impairment. These individuals must be seated 30 minutes prior to Commencement, that is, no later than 9 am. At that point, the area--which is a raised platform with a ramp-- becomes open to the public. Please note that one family member may accompany the person with special needs; however, the rest of the family will need to sit in the stands.
