Accessible Seating and Wheelchairs

Commencement 2015

The cost to purchase a wheelchair for graduation weekend is $5 (for wear and tear) and a $100 deposit will be put on the student account until it is returned. Students must check out wheelchair by Thursday or Friday at Health & Counseling Services and return it the following Monday. Wheelchairs will not be available for pick up and drop off throughout the weekend and will not be available for guests (students only) due to the high tendency of them being taken.

If you would like to borrow a wheelchair for use at the campus events, please contact Gonzaga Health & Counseling Services at 509-313-4053, or

Please arrive early at each event to obtain assistance for accessible seating.
