Accessibility

Popejoy Hall offers ADA accessible seating located on the orchestra level only, and are accessible by ramp. These seats are also transferrable and are highlighted below in the seating guide (Rows I and ZZZ).

Please note that ADA accessible seats are reserved for patrons with mobility impairments and their companion(s). Purchasing accessible seating acknowledges that you, or a member of your party, requires accessible seating. The purchase or use of these seats by non-disabled patrons or their companions may result in seat relocation or forfeiture of the ticket and any ticketing costs.

Accessible seating can be purchased online by selecting seats in rows I or ZZZ, or by phone or in person at the UNM Ticket Office.

ACCESSIBLE PARKING

Accessible parking is available in the Cornell Parking Structure for those with a handicapped placard. These handicapped parking spaces are free during Popejoy Presents events. 

If designated accessible spaces are unavailable, any parking space not otherwise restricted by signage may be used as long as an ADA placard is properly displayed. 

Free parking is also available in our Special Event Lot (University G Lot) where you can use our wheelchair–accessible shuttles to arrive at Popejoy Hall. 

Visit our Transportation & Parking page for parking destination details or UNM’s Parking & Transportation Services page for more information on UNM’s accessible parking.
