Campus Accessibility

Accessible Desks

The Office of Accessibility and Transportation maintains approximately 40 adjustable desks for students with disabilities.  At the start of each academic semester, the coordinator processes requests from DRES students to locate adjustable desks in various campus buildings. An email request is sent to Facilities and Services to move the accessible furniture from the previous location to the desired location for use during the semester.

Campus Environmental Access

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is one of the most accessible campuses in the nation. However, there are times when accessibility and/or barrier issues arise for the campus community. The Coordinator of Accessibility and Transportation is the main point of contact to coordinate the resolution of environmental access concerns. Issues may include:

  • Bicycles located in areas that block access
  • Accessible parking concerns and accommodations
  • ADA doors and elevators that are not functioning
  • Buildings dating pre-1990 that are lacking certain access features
  • Barriers found in paths of access
  • Review of new or remodeled facilities with updated access features, and
  • Any other general access concerns that may be encountered.
