Wright State University's Nutter Center recognizes the needs of guests with disabilities as defined by the American Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. We continue to make every effort to comply with state and federal accessibility regulations and make reasonable accommodations for guests with disabilities.


Portions of Lots 1, 2, and 9 are designated for our patrons with disabilities. There are a total of 70 parking spaces, 39 of which are van accessible. In addition, extra handicap spaces in the designated lots and surrounding lots for physically challenged patrons may be held (depending on the event). To park in these areas, it is necessary to display an official state handicap parking permit or handicap license plate. To ensure you are able to get to the appropriate location, it is very important that you speak with the parking attendants and tell them you require handicap parking. For special arrangements, please contact Wright State Nutter Center Event Services at (937) 775-4545 or at nutterguest@wright.edu.
