Accessible Learning

Posted on Thursday, August 11th, 2016

The University of Guelph is committed to creating an inclusive environment for all people, including removing barriers for students who experience disabilities.  If you experience either a temporary or permanent disability that impairs your ability to participate in academic activities, Student Accessibility Services (SAS) is here to help!

SAS supports students with all types of disabilities, including (but is not limited to) the following general categories: learning disabilities, ADHD, mental health disabilities, vision and hearing impairments, mobility/physical impairments, medical conditions, and autism spectrum disorder.  

Generally, we do ask students to produce documentation from a health professional that describes the types of limitations you experience. If you are still in the process of being assessed or getting that documentation, feel free to give us a shout as we may be able to provide some interim assistance.

Every student who registers with us is assigned an Advisor. They will provide on-going support and coach you through the process of setting up any accommodations you require. A few examples of some of the accommodations we are able to provide include note-taking assistance, access to our exam centre, barrier-free access to classrooms, assistive devices for hearing, access to scooters and wheelchairs, and guides for getting around campus.
