Mobility Impairments

Support Services for Students with Mobility Impairment

Students with mobility concerns are encouraged to contact us well in advance of each semester since many concerns such as physical access to buildings and academic services require early preparation. In the past, we have arranged services for students experiencing such musculoskeletal difficulties as partial paralysis, arthritis, multiple sclerosis and cerebral palsy. Additionally, students with respiratory and cardiac difficulties which often affect mobility have also sought specific services through our office.

Specific support services available may include:

  • Provision of an access map outlining entrances to buildings and accessible pathways
  • Early registration to ensure classrooms are accessible and time is available between classes to get from one location to another
  • Notification to instructors regarding testing and classroom accommodations
  • Assistance in outlining evacuation plan from buildings
  • Designated parking based on permission from our office and issued through the University Police Department
  • Liaison with community resources and agencies
