Part of this commitment includes arranging academic accommodations for students with disabilities to ensure they can participate in all of their academic activities. If you are a student with a disability and think you may need accommodations, you are strongly encouraged to contact Student Wellness Services (SWS) and register as early as possible. For more information, including important deadlines, please visit the Student Wellness website.

The Return to Work and Accommodation Department was developed to ensure consist and fair assistance for employees requiring access to accommodation and/or sick leave, and to ensure a safe return to work for all employees at the university.

Individualized Emergency Response Plans can be requested by employees who may require assistance to evacuate a building during an emergency.

Getting Around Campus   [map]

Queen's Campus Map has been built upon a platform of accessibility with the intent that users of all abilities and operating systems can retrieve way-finding information for Queen's buildings and departments, both on and off campus.

Users can choose to view wheelchair access logos for quick information or consult the Campus Accessibility Guide and the very detailed Building Accessibility document (PDF 20 MB) for more accessibility-related information.
