Accessibility and disability information
Desert Financial Arena is ADA accessible for both graduates and their guests. Graduates should indicate when registering for graduation ceremonies if they or their guests will need accommodations for university ceremonies. Graduates that indicate this will receive additional information regarding accessibility one month prior to the ceremony to their asu.edu email address.
Accessible parking and guest drop off
Disabled parking is available in Lot 58, which is approximately a two-minute walk to Desert Financial Arena.
Golf carts are not available to transport guests from the parking lot to Desert Financial Arena for College of Health Solutions Convocation; however, security at the disabled lot will allow vehicles to pass to drop off guests directly next to Desert Financial Arena if you do not plan to park in disabled parking.
Ramp access is available for both guests and students for both check in and seating.
A small number of wheelchairs may be available for university ceremonies on a first come, first served basis for indoor use only; however, it is highly recommended to bring your own wheelchair or other mobility device to all university ceremonies.
Accessible guest seating
Guests who have a mobility impairment will be able to sit in reserved ADA seating in the interior concourse level of the arena with one companion. Disabled seating is a short walk from the main entry doors. No stairs need to be climbed to access this seating. While the seating is available on a first come, first served basis, the College of Health Solutions Convocation ceremony will have ample ADA seating for our guests based on the size of the ceremony.
Accessible graduate seating
Share your needs with our team when you arrive to Desert Financial Arena after checking in. We will work with you to ensure you have the best seating for any accommodation needs.
Live captioning: There will be live captioning available for this event.
American Sign Language interpreters
ASL interpreters will be next to the stage during ceremonies.
