Supports and Services for Students with Disabilities

Queen’s University is committed to building a campus community that is inclusive for all individuals, and ensuring that its services, supports and spaces are accessible for persons with disabilities.

We are a community that works together to create an environment where everyone has a full and enriching Queen’s experience.

Successful learning, living, and employment outcomes are the result of a shared responsibility and commitment on the part of students, staff, faculty, and senior administrators towards removing and preventing barriers to participation.

The Accessibility Hub has compiled an extensive list of resources and services available on campus for prospective and current students to prevent barriers to participation, successful learning, and living in the Queen's community.

There are many supports and services on campus to assist students with disabilities suited to their needs, that will enhance their ability to participate fully in the life of the university.
