In 2019, Capital One Arena was recognized as becoming a Sensory Inclusive Venue. The Sensory Inclusive initiative is designed to assist public attractions and facilities better entertain guests that might have sensory needs and/or processing issues. A sensory need/sensory processing issue is one where the guest affected finds noises, smells, lights and even crowds not only overwhelming from the sensory perspective but also sometimes physically painful. Because of this, these guests often find themselves isolated from the community.
Capital One Arena has partnered with KultureCity to improve our ability to assist and accommodate guests with sensory needs. Our objective is to provide an inclusive and seamless experience for all guests for all events including those with sensory needs. We strive to raise awareness of the needs and challenges faced by individuals with sensory processing disorders by providing a Sensory Room, supplying our Team Members with continuous training, and offering Sensory Bags.
Sensory Bags, containing special KCVIP badges, fidget tools, noise canceling headphones and other resources, are available for checkout at Guest Services near Section 102, Guest Services near Section 402, the Quiet Room located at 215B across from Section 217/218 and on the Lexus Suites Level near Suite 341. There is no cost to the patron, you simply need to check out by leaving an ID.
KultureCity Sensory Room
The new “David Costabile Sensory Room” at Capital One Arena provides a dedicated space designed in partnership with KultureCity and by medical professionals for those who may need a quieter and more secure environment. Outfitted with bean bags from Yogibo, visual light panels by Nanoleaf, activity panels, Sparkle Interactive Light (by NunoErin - a therapeutically fun furniture embedded with soft glowing lights that respond to motion), bubble walls, and a custom tactile artwork created by an autistic artist, all guests are welcome to use this space for stimulation break at every game and event.
All public restrooms are accessible to our patrons with disabilities. Capital One Arena also has family restrooms on each level located across from Section 114, across from Section 215, and across from Section 400 (at the top of the F Street escalator).
Capital One Arena welcomes disabled guests who need the use of a dog as a service animal when the dog has been individually trained or is in training to do work or perform tasks for the guest. Comfort animals are not allowed in Capital One Arena. Guests using a service animal will be responsible for the animal’s care and supervision when present at Capital One Arena. We recommend that the Office of Accessible Seating and Services be contacted to purchase accessible seating or be notified prior to the event if special accommodation is needed for service animals.
Sign Language Interpreters
Upon request, Capital One Arena can provide sign language interpreters for guests with hearing disabilities. Requests for this service must be received 21 days prior to the event. Please call 202-661-5065 for assistance.
