For Students and Guests who Need Special Accommodations:
At all its commencement ceremonies, UC San Diego accommodates disabled individuals in these ways:
Wheelchair seating: the end chair in each row can be moved to fit a wheelchair. Please ask a security or production individual (yellow jackets) for help removing chairs. All seats are available on a first come-first served basis. UCSD does not provide rental wheelchairs. We recommend students contact a local hospital supply company if a rental is required.
Sun sensitivity: two 40’ canopied tents, one on each side of the general seating sections, accommodate those with sun sensitivity. Seats are available on a first come-first served basis. It is STRONGLY suggested parties needing this seating arrive at least 2 hours prior to the ceremony, which is when guests begin arriving.
American Sign Language interpreters will be on stage throughout the ceremony.
Disabled parking is available (for those with diasabled parking permits) at the Hopkins Parking Structure (http://act.ucsd.edu/maps/)
ADA carts assigned for those with wheelchair needs and walking impairments. For those who cannot walk the distance from the street to the mid-field (200 yards on grass), the ADA cart can drop off your guests near the stage area. Alert the ADA cart driver of the walking impairment. The guest must walk from the drop-off point to the guest-seating area. Shuttle wait is between 1 and 15 minutes. We advise wearing flat shoes as RIMAC Field is a grassy field.
NOTE: All seating is first come-first served, so while the event begins at 8.00am, it is STRONGLY suggested that those wishing to best avail themselves of these disabled seating accommodations arrive as early as 6.00am.
