What if I have special needs?

The Community Fair is a rain or shine event.  Most activities take place on grassy areas and athletic fields.  Brick and concrete walking paths provide access to most of the venues; however, wheelchair and walker access may be difficult in a few areas. Parking at the 9th Avenue lot provides access to an upper and lower brick path which lead to the festivities and games.  Complimentary golf carts driven by student volunteers will be circulating around campus parking lots to provide rides for interested parties.

 How do I get to Campus? Where do I park? 

Guests must arrange transportation to and from campus. All Ursinus parking lots from both the 5th Avenue and 9th Avenue entrances are available for community use. View a campus map.
