Accessibility Services for People with Disabilities
We are pleased to provide family members and guests, who have
accessibility needs, a reserved area. Students must indicate this
information on the commencement ticket order form, and tickets
designating wheelchair, accessible and companion seating will be
issued. As you consider your need for accessible tickets please be
aware that accessible seating is available only in designated
reserved areas. Unfortunately, because all accessible seating is
limited we cannot seat the entire family. We can only accommodate
one guest to be seated with a family member in this section. Please
designate a family companion through the selection of a companion
ticket through the online ticket order form. Parking passes for
those with mobility impairments should be requested on the ticket
order form as well. If you need accessible seating accommodations,
it is important you provide early notification of these needs due
to limited seating.
Due to the large number of guests, we will release all
accessible needs seats after 9:30 a.m.
Butler Annex parking lot (located at the intersection of 52nd
and Boulevard Place) will be reserved for those individuals who
have a state-issued disability placard or a Butler University
issued permit. Butler University issued permits must be requested
on the ticket order form. This is to allow for easy access to the
North East Gate of the Butler Bowl for access to the reserved
The Butler University Bookstore provides a courtesy golf cart
shuttle from the university campus. The golf cart shuttle will make
a loop through campus before dropping guests off at the entrance to
the Butler Bowl. View the Shuttle Map HERE.
Any vehicle may enter the Hinkle lot to drop-off guests
who are not able to walk long distances.
Ushers will refer guests to the reserved wheelchair accessible
seating areas. One companion will be permitted to sit with the
wheelchair user. Please request a companion ticket on the online
ticket order form.
Accommodations for those who are hearing impaired will be
provided in the form of an American Sign Language interpreter.
Please inform us so that we can direct you to an area within close
proximity to the interpreter. Phonic Ear Sound Enhancement is also
available to amplify stage dialogue. Guests may pick up their
individual receiver at the Information Desk located near the
entrance to the Butler Bowl. A photo ID or credit card will be held
