Wheelchair and Mobility Issues

Alumni Memorial Park and Epstein Family Plaza are outdoor locations with level seating.  Shade is limited and provided by the trees. 

Wheelchair seating is available at the university and social work ceremonies, with one companion seat per wheelchair due to limited space. Your other guests must sit in the general seating area. General seating is first-come, first-served. If your guest would like to stay with your entire group and is able to sit in a standard folding chair, they may leave their walker or wheelchair in the designated wheelchair area at the site or in any location that is not blocking an aisle or walkway. USC is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

Parking on campus is free May 11 - 13 and first-come, first-served, including disabled parking. If you would like to drop off guests with a wheelchair, please enter campus through the Royal Street Entrance located on Jefferson Blvd at the Royal Street intersection.

Note: You are responsible for providing a wheelchair for your guest(s). The university has a limited number of wheelchairs available on commencement day.
