Request for Special Accommodations

Accommodation requests for both the University and Law School ceremonies are handled by the University's Convocation Office.

Candidates who need special accommodations (early access, special seating, special parking, etc.) for themselves or their guests and candidates should submit the required form online at convocation.uchicago.edu/specialaccess by Friday, May 26, 2017.  In the form, please clearly indicate whether the accommodations requested are for the 530th University Convocation on Saturday morning, the Law School’s Diploma & Hooding Ceremony, or both.  For questions after submission of the form, please contact the convocation staff at (773)702-2513 or e-mail convocation@uchicago.edu 

Please note: The University does not provide wheelchairs.  Individuals are responsible for bringing their own to all ceremonies.  Please confer with guests in advance about any special needs to avoid having wheelchair-bound guests arrive without wheelchair-accessible seating available.
