Family at Commencement

Wheelchair Accessibility

The doctoral commencement will be held in the College Park Marriott Hotel & Conference Center at University of Maryland University College. Commencement for bachelor's and master's graduates will take place in the Xfinity Center at University of Maryland, College Park. While both locations are wheelchair accessible, they do not provide wheelchairs for visitors. Please plan ahead.

Help at the Ceremony

UMUC staff members will be on hand to assist graduates and guests with special needs. Sign language interpreters will translate each of the weekend ceremonies, and closed captioning will be broadcast. Interpreters will be provided at the doctoral ceremony if requested in advance.

Request Accommodations

As a graduate, you can request specific accommodations, including special parking arrangements, for you or your guests. You'll have the opportunity to make requests during the RSVP process. Graduates who request accommodations at the weekend ceremonies will receive detailed information and a parking pass for the Terrapin Trail Garage adjacent to Xfinity Center.
