On Saturday, May 17, information is available by calling the University Police Department at (512) 471-4441 or by TDD (512) 471-4777. While every effort will be made, the university may be unable to fulfill last-minute requests. A reserved seating section for guests with hearing impairments will be available near the southwest corner of the stage. An interpreter will be provided. In addition, a limited number of wheelchairs will be available to help transport people with mobility issues to and from their seats. Those requiring wheelchairs for the duration of a ceremony should plan on making their own accommodations prior to arriving on campus.
