The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was enacted to ensure that persons with disabilities are afforded the same opportunities to participate in American society as all persons. The Raleigh Convention Center is an ADA-compliant facility. We have strived to make the Center highly accessible according to the spirit and intent of ADA. Accommodations for persons with disabilities include Braille signage, restrooms and designated parking.
Accessible Parking: first level of each parking deck and near elevators on upper levels (varies by deck). Visit this Interactive Downtown Parking Map at GoDowntownRaleigh.com

The Raleigh Convention Center welcomes guests with disabilities and their assistive animals.
While it is not necessary, we encourage guests with assistive animals to contact facility management (919) 995-8500 in advance of the event in order to most appropriately accommodate the needs of the guest and their animal.
Restrooms are available in main lobby, ballroom lobby, south lobby, and mezzanine
Family and gender neutral restrooms are also available in the main lobby, ballroom lobby, and mezzanine
Faucet controls automatically start through sensors
Wheelchairs are available on a first-come, first-served basis at the main lobby security kiosk. (A government issued picture ID is required as a deposit for the wheelchair – think we can choose not to include) Wheelchairs may not be removed from the facility. A fee will be imposed for any wheelchairs not returned.
Fire alarms – emergency warning systems are equipped with both audible and visual strobe alarms.
Please contact us with questions, or for more explicit information about the Center’s layout and structure. We look forward to hearing from you.
