HANDICAPPED ACCESSIBILITY

 

Muhlenberg College’s Baccalaureate and Commencement exercises are held on the lawn in front of the Haas College Center.  In the event of extreme inclement weather, ceremonies will be moved to Memorial Hall.  Please plan to arrive early to secure appropriate parking and seating.

PARKING for cars with a state-issued handicapped hang-tag or license plate ONLY is located behind the Haas College Center and can be accessed from N. 26th Street.  See Map. This is available on a first-come, first-served basis.  A drop-off area for those with walking difficulty is also in this lot. Campus Safety officers will be available to direct you.

A special area for wheelchairs (plus one accompanying family member) will be available on the west side of the lawn closest to the drop off area. However, ALL SEATING on the front lawn is flat and accessible to physically challenged individuals.  If the ceremony is held indoors, Memorial Hall will have a designated area for wheelchairs on the gym floor.

If anyone in your family has a hearing or visual impairment, a sign-language interpreter will be located in front of the stage on the left-hand side. 

Individuals requiring other accommodations should contact the Office of Public Relations at 484-664-3230.
