Closed Captioning

There will be closed captioning available during the ceremony and on the live stream on our YouTube channel. Those who require closed captioning should plan to sit close to the stage so they can see the screens. For those who have a smart phone or other smart device, a link will be provided in the program with instructions on how to access the closed captioning feed.


Colorado School of Mines will not have wheelchairs available to rent. If you have a guest who is unable to walk at least 50 yards without assistance, we highly recommend renting a wheelchair for the day. The passenger pick up/drop off area on Elm Street offers the least amount of walking for guests.


Accessible parking is located in the parking garage and a few spots in Lot D. There will be a passenger loading zone available on Elm Street across from Lot D.
Please reference the commencement map for locations.
