Kohl Center Accessibility Guide

A grant from Oscar Mayer, a division of Kraft Foods, Inc., helped pay for the accessibility features of the Kohl Center.

Welcome message from U.S. Senator Herb Kohl

I am very pleased with the success of the University's efforts to ensure full access to persons with disabilities in the design and planning of the Kohl Center. I believe that we've set a new standard for accommodation and I'm proud that the Kohl Center will be a model for other facilities across the nation. I sincerely hope that everyone will have an opportunity to fully enjoy all the events that will be held at the Kohl Center in the years ahead.

Welcome to the Kohl Center!

If we may be of service, please stop by our Guest Services Office in the Kohl Concourse near Section 119, our Guest Services Stands at Gates A and C, or at our Gate B Reception Desk.
