Please note that while Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall is fully compliant with the American Disabilities Act, the facility is very large. Due to the sheer size, it may be difficult for individuals with limited mobility to navigate the distance from the available parking area(s) to the arena or concourse seating areas. Please refer to the following special needs parking and seating information as you make decisions and arrangements.  Special needs parking and seating accommodations are provided on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Special needs parking is available below Jim Whelan Boardwalk Hall. Please follow signage and attendant direction upon arrival. 

Special needs seating is limited, so please arrive early and see an usher for assistance. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer reserved seating. Additionally, special needs seating locations will be restricted to guests with special seating needs and one assistant, or family member. Guests who are unable to navigate stairs or the escalator will be given priority access to elevators.

Yes, there will be sign language interpreters at the ceremony. The interpreters will be shown as a picture in picture on the projection screens in Boardwalk Hall.

Stockton University encourage persons with disabilities to participate in its programs and events.
