The license plate must be properly displayed on the vehicle or the placard hung from the rear view mirror and easily visible to the parking attendants when approaching campus and when parking on campus.
Handicapped Seating will be available in the RPI Field House for eligible persons by contacting the Student Life Office. The Student Life Office will provide requested designated seating for the handicapped person and for additional guests. Floor level seating is available to all handicapped individuals, however, it is recommended that prior arrangements would be beneficial to ensure seating as without prior notification it will be based on a first come, first serve basis. Handicapped seating arrangements must be made in advance to ensure requested seating locations. Please contact Student Life Office.
Guests can set up wheelchair rental directly through any of the medical supply companies. Payment, pickup and drop off should be arranged well in advance of Commencement Weekend to ensure availability as there are many local college and university commencements held the same weekend. The college is not equipped to provide wheelchairs.
