Seating request for guests with physical needs

A limited number of special access seating is designated for Convocation guests who may have difficulty with stairs or who use wheelchairs on a first-come, first-filled basis.

We recommend that guests with special needs arrive at least 15 minutes before the doors open. Drop off guests at the ground-floor-level door located beside the steps to the South entrance of the Physical Activities Complex (PAC). Upon entering the main gymnasium, ushers will show your guests to the reserved seating areas.


To request Special Guest Seating tickets, complete this online form by June 3 for spring Convocation and October 11 for fall Convocation. Two tickets will be provided via email for each request submitted.  

The deadline to submit a request through the online form for fall convocation has now passed. If you have any requests, please email convocation@uwaterloo.ca and we will do our best to accomodate you. 


  1. The University does not have wheelchairs for public use.
  2. A registered nurse will be on duty during the convocation ceremonies. The nurse's station is located at the rear of the main gymnasium.
