Accessibility

Graduating students

If you are a graduating student who requires accessibility arrangements for convocation, such as mobility assistance, visual assistance, audio assistance, or any other assistance, please complete the Grad Accessibility Accommodations form so that we can arrange appropriate accommodations. In order to meet accessibility requests, notification must be received during the registration period.

If you have any additional requests, please email convocation@uwaterloo.ca and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Guests

If any guests require mobility assistance (e.g., use wheelchair or walker), please ensure your grad completes the Guest Accessible Seating form so that we can arrange appropriate accommodations.

Guests who require accommodation should arrive at least 15 minutes before the doors open. Guests with mobility concerns can be dropped off at the entrance of the Student Life Centre expansion by entering William Tutte Way off of Ring Road. There will be signage to follow that day. Ushers in the main gymnasium will show guests to the reserved seating area. 

Accessible parking will be available in lot L. If you require accessible parking, ensure that your grad completes the Guest Accessible Seating form during registration to arrange accessible parking. 

If you have any requests, please email convocation@uwaterloo.ca and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Information about washroom facilities is available on the venue page.
