Accessibility Information for Individuals with Special Needs

Congratulations on your graduation and we look forward to seeing you at the Commencement ceremony!

If your guest requires accessible seating at Commencement, we encourage you to share the following information with them:

Alico Arena has accessible parking spaces located directly in front of the arena.  Accessible parking is first come, first serve.  If the accessible parking spaces are full when you arrive, you may utilize the pick up/drop off section at the front of the arena before parking your car in the general parking lots.

Alico Arena has denoted areas of accessible seating.  The first two rows in sections D, E, F, G, and H, located on the first floor on the west side of the arena, are reserved for those who can navigate a few steps, as well as the bleacher seating in sections A, B, V, and U. Sections FF, KK, QQ, and VV on the second floor have accessible seating for wheelchairs.  While we cannot seat entire parties together, each individual needing special seating will be allowed to have one companion sit with them. Accessible seating is first come, first serve.

Wheelchairs are limited and available for transport only. If you need the use of a wheelchair for the entire ceremony, we recommend that you bring one with you.  If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Adaptive Services at 239-590-7956 or email adaptive@fgcu.edu.

 

ASL interpreters are provided for all ceremonies.  It is recommended that anyone utilizing interpreting services arrive early in order to choose seats near the front that will best accommodate viewing the interpreters.
