Graduation Accommodations for Parking:
Visitors with handicap parking permits can park on the East side of the Health and Sports Complex. A map is available on the UNK homepage at www.unk.edu. Family members who are transporting a handicapped individual will have access to drop off the individual on the East side of the Health and Sports Complex, but will need to move their vehicle to another parking lot.
Graduation Accommodations for Seating:
Visitors in wheelchairs can sit in the corner seating sections on the main floor or use the elevator in the Northeast corner of the building to sit in the designated section on the arena floor. Individuals who have difficulties with steps are encouraged to arrive at least an hour early (especially for spring graduation ceremonies which tend to have larger attendance) to have access to seats just below the railings on the main floor or to obtain seating on the arena floor bleachers.
Graduation Accommodations for the Deaf:
If you require this accommodation, please contact the ADA Coordinator at least one month prior to the event so that seating arrangements can be made.
