Accessibility for Students and Guests
Here, you will find information about accessible parking, wheelchair access and other common accessibility-related concerns.
During commencement, students will need to access the stage via stairs. If you will require use of the elevator/lift (rather than the stairs) to access the stage at commencement, or access to wheelchair accessible transportation from Purchase College to the Westchester County Center, please complete our survey.
General information about the event can be found on the Commencement website page.
Accessible Parking Lots & Spaces
Those with official accessible parking hangtags may utilize accessible lots and spaces. Purchase College does not issue these hangtags.
For Guests Who Are Unable to Walk From the Parking lot
Please pull up on Central Avenue to drop them off in front of the Westchester County Center.
