Verizon Center ADA Certification
Verizon Center has a recognized accessibility program that is one of the best in the sports and entertainment business with the Accessible Seating and Services Office being exclusively dedicated to servicing individuals with disabilities. An Accessibility Coordinator visits our accessible seating sections during each event to answer questions, arrange the purchase of accessible seating for future events, and/or provide assistance whenever needed for our guests who have disabilities. Sensitivity training is offered to staff on an annual basis.
Many services and amenities are offered to accommodate the needs of our guests with disabilities at Verizon Center. One will find a Metro stop with elevator access to the street level adjacent to the arena, a drop-off zone adjacent to the building, ample curb cuts and accessible entrances into the arena. Once inside, each level is accessible via elevators.
Verizon Center offers accessible seating in an integrated setting in all levels if the arena. Any individuals with a disability may order tickets by calling the Accessible Seating and Services Office by phone or TTY. Also, Verizon Center has installed a TTY at one of the ticket windows at the main entrance to make ordering tickets easier for everyone.
Additional aids and services include tactile and Braille signage, accessible pay telephones including two TTY phones, accessible restrooms, lowered service counters and condiment stands.
With appropriate notice, Verizon Center provides audio description and sign interpretation. An FM assistive listening system will be in operation for all events.
Verizon Center has been designed and constructed to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
