Accessible Parking

There are some accessible parking spaces available in front of Sage Hall (see map). Patrons can access the accessible ramp on the Belmont Avenue side of the Performing Arts Center by passing through the courtyard area between Sage and Mendenhall.

Wheelchair Accessibility

The Mendenhall Center for the Performing Arts can be accessed by the ramp on Green Street, or the ramp on the Belmont Avenue side of the building. During construction, the Belmont Avenue ramp is accessible via the walkway between Sage and Mendenhall or the temporary sidewalk from Belmont Avenue between the construction fencing and the building. Please visit the Parking page for parking options during construction.

Box Office

The elevator to the second floor box office can be accessed from either the Green Street or Belmont Avenue entrances.

From Green Street

Enter via the ramp and turn right. At the end of the hallway, turn left and then take another right towards the bright orange and red hallway. Follow the hallway all the way down until you reach the purple carpet. The elevator will be on your right.

From Belmont Ave

The elevator is located on the left when you enter the building, right after the entrance to the Josten Library.

To get to the box office take the elevator to the Upper Level (UL), exit, turn left out of the elevator, and continue down the foyer. The box office will be on your right.
