Commencement is held in the Reilly Center Arena, a basketball facility. Guests sit in "the reds," chair-back seating in the upper level, where navigation of stairs is required.
Accommodations will be made, upon request, for guests with physical disabilities. A handicapped seating area is provided at court level. Space is limited, so the number of guests accompanying each handicapped person will be restricted to one or two.
Parking facilities on campus are overwhelmed for Commencement, resulting in parking on road shoulders across campus and long walks to the Reilly Center.
Handicapped parking lots are maintained near the RC, but restricted to those with proper handicapped credentials.
To request special seating or parking arrangements, please contact the Office of Vice Provost for Student Life at 716-375-2513.
