Handicapped Parking on Campus
Those with state-issued disability plates or placards will be allowed to park as close to the Commencement Exercises tent at H.L. Rocheleau Athletic Field as space allows. Please display your handicapped placard where a Public Safety Officer will see it. We recommend arriving early for the best parking.
If there is no parking available close to the tent, Public Safety will allow you to drop off passengers with disabilities near the tent, before finding a parking place elsewhere on campus. If you have any questions about handicapped parking, please contact Elizabeth Vestal, director of special events at 508-767-7026 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
