Wheelchair and Mobility Assistance Accessibility
The Long Center is accessible by wheelchair in Dell Hall, Rollins Studio Theatre and throughout the Long Center Building and Terrace, including all restrooms. Wheelchair assistance service is available curbside by request. Curb cuts allow easy access to our sidewalk system, and parking area access ramps. Main entrance doors have automated mechanical service. Dell Hall and other venues inside have elevators that service all levels of the facility. Courtesy wheelchairs are available by calling in advance. It is strongly recommended that patrons who do not normally use a wheelchair bring a companion to assist them in maneuvering around the Long Center public areas.

The accessible entrance to the Long Center is on the ground floor to the left of the Grand Staircase. Elevators are located just inside through the Rollins Studio Theatre Lobby.
