Determine accessibility needs

David Booth Memorial Stadium is a fully accessible facility with open limited-mobility and wheelchair seating that can be claimed by guests on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to ongoing construction at Memorial Stadium, accessible seating will be limited in the stands and on the field, and only one elevator will be operational. Alternate viewing locations (at the Kansas Memorial Union and the Jayhawk Welcome Center, both of which meet all ADA requirements) will be available for guests who prefer not to enter the stadium. There will also be a live stream of the event that friends, family, and loved ones can watch from their personal devices. For information about accessible parking, transit, campus traversal, and hospitality, see the relevant section on the "Attend" page.
