Anyone with special needs and requests special seating should call the Housing, Conferences and Hospitality office at 973-408-3013 to reserve special seating. Each special needs person can bring one guest with them in the special needs section. This section is for those attendees who are hard of hearing or have difficulty walking or require special assistance. If you have difficulty walking, upon arrival you may signal a public safety officer who will contact someone driving a van. They will pick you up and drop you off closer to Mead Hall. This van is not able to kneel, however.

The special needs seating has no shade, so please plan accordingly. Also, it is a long ceremony, and extreme weather such as cold or heat may occur. Please be prepared with a small blanket, if necessary, and use sunscreen.
