Handicapped parking is located in the Alumni Lot for chapel events and the Case-Geyer Library Lot for the senior torchlight procession. If the ceremony takes place at the Taylor Lake site, accessible parking will be at Lally Lane and 113 Broad Street; if in Sanford Field House (severe weather location), parking will be in the lots surrounding Reid Athletic Center. If you need special drop-off arrangements, please see a campus safety officer for assistance. For safety reasons, we ask that there are no drop-offs on Broad Street (NY State Hwy 12B).
