Wheelchair Reservations

Due to a limited quantity of complimentary wheelchairs and a high volume of requests, we regret that we are no longer taking wheelchair reservations for Commencement 2017. If you would like to be placed on the waiting list please fill out this form.

Information about wheelchair pick up and drop off will be sent in early May to families with wheelchair reservations and will be posted to the Commencement website.

For information about handicapped seating at Commencement events and handicapped parking and shuttles, please see the Disabilities page.

Yale is pleased to offer complimentary wheelchairs for Commencement weekend to frail family members and friends. We are able to provide two wheelchairs per family, and urge guests who do not use a wheelchair at home but who may be challenged by the crowds and considerable walking between events to consider using a wheelchair while at Commencement. Information about wheelchair pick up an drop off, handicapped seating at Commencement events, and handicapped parking and shuttles will be sent in early May to families with wheelchair reservations and will be posted to the Commencement website. Our quantity of complimentary chairs is limited, and early reservations are encouraged.
