Commencement Disability Parking/Seating:

Parking for persons with disabilities will be available in the Perdue Hall parking lot. Perdue Hall is located on Atlanta Student Movement Blvd. (Fair Street) and the parking lot is located behind the building.  

Vehicles with a state-issued disability placard will need to enter the campus from Joseph E. Lowery Blvd.  The street will be closed to thru traffic, so you will need to show your placard upon entering the campus for access.  To access the parking lot, you will turn left onto Euharlee Street. The parking area will be clearly marked and located on your right.   Spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis. A permanent or temporary state-issued Disability placard is required to park in the designated parking spaces.

Please plan to arrive early as reserved parking is not guaranteed. 

Transportation carts will be available throughout the campus to provide assistance in moving about. 

Venue Entry:
There will be a special entrance for persons with disabilities, located on Atlanta Student Movement Blvd. (Fair Street) directly across from Perdue Hall.  Loading and unloading is available at the gate, however, vehicles must proceed to the parking area.

Upon entry, persons who use wheelchairs and one buddy will be directed to that reserved area.  For parties larger than two, each guest must have a ticket for entry.  If there are others in your party, they will need to sit in the color-coded section denoted on their ticket.

All reserved seating is color-coded.  Make sure your graduate obtains the appropriate color for persons with disabilities.  We will have ushers on hand to direct you to the proper seating area, based on your color-coded ticket.
