Disability Accommodations and Parking

The University of Washington Bothell is committed to providing equal opportunity and reasonable accommodation in its services, programs, activities, education and employment for individuals with disabilities.

Disability Accommodations

Certain sections of the arena have been reserved for guests with special needs and students may order tickets for these sections through the Registration/Online Form.

  • Wheelchair seating - These sections accommodate guests using wheelchairs and an attendant.
  • Mobility impaired (MI) seating - These seats are reserved for guests who may have difficulty climbing stairs or walking long distances. A limited number of guests may sit with the mobility impaired guest in this section. Please be considerate of your fellow guests when selecting these tickets.
  • American Sign Language (ASL) Interpreter - These seats are located in the South East corner of the arena. Guests in the ASL section may also have one additional guest seated with them.
  • Assistive Listening Device (ALD) - ALDs will be available for those who need them. No tickets are required for these devices, however, students should reserve them when completing the Registration/Online Form so that enough devices will be on hand the day of the event. Reserved devices can be picked up on the upper Concourse inside the arena on Commencement day.

Disability accommodations must be made through the Registration/Online Form.
