Guest Drop-Off and Handicap Parking

  • All guest drop-off and pick-up is at the intersection of Techwood Drive and Bobby Dodd Way.
  • Guests with a valid handicap parking tag may park on Brittain Drive and Fowler Street, located next to Peters Parking Deck.

Strollers

Strollers are not allowed into Bobby Dodd Stadium. Bag valet is located across the street from Gate 6 on the top of Peters Parking Deck if guests wish to check in their stroller (car seat carriers may also be checked in too).

Exceptions will be made to the bag policy for parents to bring in a cross body baby carrier or diaper bag, which will require additional screening. Contact the gate supervisor to have your diaper bag screened and approved. 

Wheelchairs

Wheelchairs will not be available at the venue. For those requiring a wheelchair, we suggest a private rental from one of these companies:

Accessible Seating for Guests with Disabilities and Limited Mobility

For guests in a wheelchair: Due to high demand, this area is strictly reserved for patrons in a wheelchair plus one companion. Students must indicate on their RSVP they have a guest in a wheelchair to receive a wheelchair spot. These seats will be assigned and guests will receive additional communications.

For guests requiring ADA seats but are not in a wheelchair: ADA seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to high demand, we will block additional seats in Bobby Dodd for ADA and limited mobility patrons. ADA seating will be set up in:

  • Sections 103-111, Rows 29-32
  • Sections 114-118, Rows 22-24

Seating maps will be posted on the seating page two weeks prior to each ceremony.
