Guest access

The commencement ceremony will be fully accessible. Drop-off location and accessible seating will be available for individuals with disabilities or limited mobility. Seating will be determined on a first-come, first-served basis and is limited to only those guests who require it. The seats will be for the person with accessible needs and for one companion. No pre-ticketing will occur for accessible seating. Wheelchair and wheelchair companion locations are scattered throughout the main level. Family members and guests are encouraged to provide their own mobility devices; UW-Whitewater does not provide wheelchairs or walkers.

Accommodations for deaf/hard of hearing guests

The seating area is served by assistive listening devices (ALD) on an FM system. Individuals may pick up headsets at the Recreation Sports and Facilities Office, located in room 100 of the Williams Center (near the north entrance doors of the fieldhouse), and must leave some form of collateral, such as a driver’s license or credit card while using the ALD. In addition, ASL interpreters will be on site in a designated area.

Accommodations for nursing mothers

Please feel free to feed your child anywhere you wish.  If you would like a more comfortable area, please head to room 105 in the Williams Center (athletic training room).

Restroom changing stations

Changing stations are located in the following areas in the Williams Center: women's restrooms (rooms 163 and 207) and men's restrooms (rooms 159 and 204).


The public restrooms are accessible.
