Disability Support

The university will not have wheelchairs available for general use by guests over commencement weekend. If you have a guest who needs the assistance of a wheelchair, we recommend you either bring your own or rent from a third party vendor. Guests may set up wheelchair rentals directly through Scootaround. Reservations should be made well in advance of commencement weekend as supplies may be limited. Since Scootaround is a third party vendor, guests are responsible for making their own arrangements including payment, delivery, and return.

Visit the Parking and Transportation page for more information.

A seating section, located next to the ground-level entrance to Bender Arena, will be available for senior citizens and persons with physical disabilities and their families. Reservations are not required. Seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Sign language interpreters and closed captioning will be provided.

Guests and graduates who have questions should contact the Academic Support and Access Center at 202-885-3360 v/tty or asac@american.edu.
