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.

Please notify the Commencement Office by Monday, April 21st at (925) 631-8300 or by e-mail at [email protected] if your family has need of a sign language interpreter. Reserved seating will be made available for you.
