Accessible Education

Formerly Services for Students with Disabilities 

Accessible Education plays a central role in Western’s efforts to ensure that its academic programs are accessible for all students at the graduate and undergraduate levels. We arrange academic accommodation for classes, exams, internships and other course or program activities, as well as provide digital and Braille textbooks, accessible campus transportation, learning strategy instruction for students with learning disabilities, access to computer labs that are equipped with assistive technology, referrals for assessments and other services, and bursaries for students who meet OSAP’s eligibility criteria.

Important Update

At this time, new students to Accessible Education requesting academic accommodation in summer courses should contact us after April 15.  For new Western students requesting accommodation for fall 2020 courses, please contact us after May 15.

Where to Find Us

Accessible Education is located on the 4th floor of the Western Student Services Building (WSSB). WSSB is on the west side of campus between the University Community Centre (UCC) and the Weldon Library.
