XV. General Information

Counselling & Disability Services (CSD)

The University of Guelph is committed to creating a barrier-free environment. We feel that providing services for students with disabilities is a shared responsibility among students, faculty and administration. This relationship is based on respect of individual rights, the dignity of the individual and the University community's shared commitment to an open, supportive learning environment.

The CSD is staffed with disability advisors, strategists, specialists and administrative support. Our services are complemented by Peer Helpers and volunteers who provide one-to-one assistance. When necessary, referrals are made to other services such as personal counselling, career counselling and Student Health Services.

The CSD provides support by implementing appropriate exam and classroom accommodations, advising students on academic, personal, and disability issues, and educating students on how to develop effective learning strategies. The staff and volunteers of the CSD also develop workshops, events and educational campaigns designed to promote greater awareness and understanding of disability issues in the University community.
