Wheelchairs will be available for loan by prior reservation HERE. Wheelchairs can be reserved for Graduate’s Day on Thursday, May 12 and Commencement Day on Friday, May 13.

A valid driver’s license is required as collateral for borrowing a wheelchair; the ID will be returned when the wheelchair is turned in. An area within the seating section of all ceremonies will be reserved for wheelchair users.

Only one guest is permitted to sit with the user due to limited space. If you request the use of a wheelchair, please know that you are responsible for returning the equipment to the designated location; otherwise, a $500 replacement cost will be levied. A limited number of wheelchairs will be available for walk-ups in a first come first serve basis.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email Commencement@vanderbilt.edu
