Manual Wheelchair for use during Commencement
If an in person ceremony takes place in 2021 we may not be able to provide wheelchairs during the pandemic. Your family member will need to sign for the chair at pickup and return it by 3:00 p.m. To rent a wheelchair privately, you may contact Byrne Home Health Center in Natick by calling 508-655-3656.
Accessible Seating because of a mobility, hearing, seeing, or health-related disability or impairment
There is limited seating capacity in the accessible areas of the ceremony site, as well as auxilliary viewing areas. Registering early will help us to plan for any accommodations.
Accessible Seating with Aisle Space for a guest using a wheelchair
Please make a request to ensure enough maneuvering and aisle space.
Accessible Drop-off Area
There will be a drop-off area at Commencement for guests with disabilities who request this and are being driven to the ceremony.
Accessible Parking Area
A designated parking area will be provided for guests who have mobility impairments and are driving themselves and make this request.
Transportation between Parking Area, Ceremony, and Reception with lift-equipped Van
Transportation may not be available during the COVID-19 pandemic so please plan accordingly.

We are monitoring all state, federal, and local guidelines and will update this site with any new information.
