Parking, Seating and Assisted Listening Devices

Tilles Center's commitment is to provide a place where everyone can utilize our spaces.


Tilles Center has special parking spaces and drop-off areas for disabled patrons. Once on campus you will be directed to these locations. Please inform the parking guides if you are carrying a disabled passenger so you may be directed appropriately. There are accessible entrances to the theater as well as an elevator if you arrive through our Mezzanine Lobby entrance (south side of the building).

Only cars with government-issued disability permits or license plates will be permitted to park in the disabled persons parking area. Please arrive early, as the number of spaces is limited.

Tilles Center has ample seating available for patrons in wheelchairs or other mobility concerns. The seating is in the central area of the theater, and is accessed without needing to walk up or down steps. Patrons may sit together with other ticket buyers (1-2 additional companions) and enjoy excellent visibility to the stage. If you need accessible seating, and have not purchased (or do not know if you have purchased) an accessible seat, please alert the Tantleff Box Office at 516.299.3100 in advance of your arrival, and we can help guide you as well as allow us to properly prepare for your arrival.

Assisted Listening Systems

To obtain an assisted listening system headset, please go to the Tantleff Box Office before the performance. You will be required to leave your license or ID in order to borrow a free assisted listening device. You will receive a headset and a receiver, but please note that our system can support inductive loops and have standard headphone jacks (3.5mm/1.8") to accommodate personal headphones. We have plenty of devices, however they are handed out on a first come, first-served basis.
