Special Accommodations

If you or your guests need special accommodations to participate in the ceremony, please let us know!


Accessible parking spaces are available in all lots and in loading areas close to most campus buildings.

There is also a drop-off location close to Red Square with a car ramp next to the bus stop: as you turn into the main entrance to the Evergreen campus from Evergreen Parkway, you are entering McCann Plaza. Continue past the parking booth and the entrances to the parking lots and you will enter a loop separated by a stand of trees. Stop near the Native American Welcome Pole. For people using a wheelchair, there is a car ramp next to the bus stop.

Evergreen staff are available to show you to the seating set aside for elderly and disabled guests.


The ceremony will be broadcast to the Lecture Hall and the Seminar II Building. Anyone may sit indoors to watch the ceremony at these locations.

Chairs are set aside for disabled and elderly seating. This special section is located on both the left and right-hand sides directly behind the roped section for the graduating students. (See below for a diagram.) Usually, there is plenty of seating for family to sit with disabled guests, but if the amount of seating is inadequate ushers may ask able-bodied guests to find other seats.
