For Guests

Wheelchair Accessible Seating 

For guests in wheelchairs, seating is reserved on the entrance level to the arena and will be marked with signage. Due to high demand, the wheelchair accessible seating area is strictly reserved for one person in a wheelchair and one additional family member.  All other members of your party will need to sit separately in general seating.  These reserved seats are on a first come, first served basis.  Guests needing this accommodation are encouraged to arrive early. Wheelchairs are NOT provided by the University to assist with entering the facility, so please plan accordingly.

Guests with mobility concerns but who do not require wheelchair accessible seating should arrive early to sit in the general admission seats. The Convocation Center will open one and a half hours prior to the ceremony. Guests with difficulty may also choose to participate by viewing the livestream of Commencement on https://commencement.kennesaw.edu/

Deaf and Hard of Hearing Guests

Sign Language Interpreting Services are provided at all ceremonies. Interpreting services will be best viewed from Section 105.  Guests are encouraged to arrive early to ensure good visibility.

Real-time captioning will be provided on a screen in front of Section 105 as well as through the ceremony livestream at https://commencement.kennesaw.edu/. Livestream can be accessed inside the venue with an internet-enabled device using this link. Guests who want to utilize the real-time captions provided in section 105 are encouraged to arrive early to ensure visibility of the screen.
