Accessibility Services

Mahaney Center for the Arts, Wright Theatre, Mead Chapel, McCullough and Dana Auditorium all have wheelchair accessible entrances.

Accessible Seating

All wheelchair-accessible locations and the adjacent companion seat will be held for purchase exclusively by patrons who have a member of their party who is a wheelchair or scooter user, or who has a mobility disability or whose disability requires the use of the features of the accessible location, until the last non-wheelchair accessible location/seat is sold. At that time, all wheelchair locations and adjacent companion seats are released for sale on a first-come, first-served basis to patrons with and without disabilities.

Accessible Parking

All campus parking lots have designated accessible parking for vehicles bearing valid Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) disability parking placards or license plates. Available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Venue-convenient accessible parking spaces and automatic doors are located on the east side (parking lot side) of the Mahaney Center for the Arts.

For certain performances in Wright Theatre and Mead Chapel, the normally-closed Chateau Road and Hepburn Road may be opened especially for patrons with accessibility concerns.


Low- or no-cost public transportation is available via Addison County Transit Resources (ACTR).  Free Dial-A Ride services are available for those aged 60+, disabled and visually-impaired people, Medicaid recipients, Reach Up participants, and some others.  Go to ACTR’s website>>
