Ventus

What is Ventus?

Ventus is an accommodation management system that allows students, instructors, Queen’s Student Accessibility Services (QSAS), and other University stakeholders to communicate easier about accommodations for students with disabilities/disabled students. It was originally developed by the University of Ottawa. Based on the feedback of students, staff, and faculty of Queen’s University, it has been restructured to improve the processes of Queen’s University.
