The Center for Disability & Access works with Facilities and Campus Planning and Construction to maintain accessible paths throughout the campus and to display signage which directs students to these paths.
For some students with disabilities, adaptive technology, equipment, or furniture in the classroom is necessary to provide equal access. Auxiliary equipment may include ergonomic chairs, accessible tables, and FM system amplification.
Classroom locations may be moved to ensure all programs and activities are accessible.
Accessible parking locations can be found throughout campus to drivers with disabilities. Students parked in designated ADA stalls within a regulated lot are required to purchase a University permit and display a state-issued ADA license plate or placard. Please contact Commuter Services for additional information.
To ensure equal access to its programs, courses, and facilities, students may be eligible for priority registration.
Service animals (as defined by the ADA) are welcome on campus and in student housing. Emotional support animals must be approved as an accommodation for campus housing and are not allowed in other areas of campus where pets are normally prohibited.
Regular scheduled / fixed route campus shuttles have lifts and are accessible and available for assisting students with mobility concerns around campus. Additionally, for approved students, a point-to-point accessible shuttle is available to schedule pick up and drop of dates and times.
The University of Utah makes a reasonable attempt to address priority snow removal in areas identified by the Center for Disability & Access and the University Grounds Department. If you have concerns about a path of travel, please feel free to contact your CDA advisor or the Dispatch Office at 801-581-7221.
