Students and Guests with Disabilities

Queen's University is committed to supporting students and their guests with disabilities and we will endeavour to meet  their individual needs when they attend graduation ceremonies.

When you are registering for graduation, the following are two questions asked on your Graduation Registration page regarding you or your guests.

    

We ask that you provide in the 'Please Specify' boxes as much information as possible so we can assist you and your guests on your graduation day or when you are collecting gown and tickets as per your graduation invoice/reference page instructions.

The Sir William Whitla Hall has wheelchair access, but no lift to the upper gallery seats. Where we have knowledge of access issues, we will ensure ground floor tickets are issued.

Disabled/mobility car access is permitted on the day of your ceremony to enable graduands/guests to alight from vehicles as close to the hall as possible. Disabled/mobility car parking spaces may also be available on a first come first served basis on the campus, however, please note that car parking is limited during the busy graduation period.

Externally charged car parking is also available close to the campus during the graduation period, also on a first come first served basis.

For students with hearing difficulties, an induction loop system is installed in the Hall, covering the ground floor and the front rows of the balcony.

Guide dogs are welcome on the University campus and in the Sir William Whitla Hall.

If you have omitted any information on your Graduation Registration page regarding access or communication requirements please contact Student Records as soon as possible prior to your graduation to ensure that suitable arrangements can be put in place for you and your guests.
