Is there ADA seating available in Tiffany Loop, for Ivy Cutting?
If you have a guest in a wheelchair or who needs a seat close to the sidewalk, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We can make arrangements for a few companion seats as well.
We recommend pulling into the Ross parking lot, directly behind Subway (off of 3rd Ave. W.) to drop off your guests before parking your car.
Commencement at the Tacoma Dome
I have guests who have difficulty with mobility. Where is the best place to drop them off in front of the Tacoma Dome?
The primary accessible entrance is the Lower NW Door.
Parking lots E and K are for guests with disabilities and are van accessible. Vehicles utilizing accessible parking lots must display appropriate placard, tabs, or license plates. All Tacoma Dome lots are wheelchair accessible.
Is there ADA seating available at Tacoma Dome?
For guests using a wheelchair or walker, or for guests with limited mobility, ADA seating (with one companion seat) is available. Graduates must make requests for accessible guest seating through Marching Order, the online registration portal for Commencement. In addition to registration, ADA and companion seating will require special ADA passes, which students can pick up at Grad Fest on April 12 – 13, or thereafter in the Provost's Office (Demaray Hall 210).
Please ask a staff member for direction upon arrival at the Commencement ceremony.
I have a guest with a hearing impairment. Will there be sign interpretation or captioning?
Yes. There will be sign interpretation at both Ivy Cutting and the Commencement ceremony. If you have a guest that needs to be seated close to an interpreter, please contact email@example.com. For the ceremony at the Tacoma Dome, there will be captioning on the screens, and hearing devices will also be available inside the arena. Please inquire at the kiosk inside the main entrances.
