Ventus is an online portal that connects students, instructors, Queen's Student Accessibility Services, and other support services in the process to request, assess, and implement academic accommodations. The portal was developed for Queen’s in 2021-22, in consultation with instructors, support staff, and student feedback groups.

For Students

Ventus helps to manage the accommodation process by allowing students to:

  • Submit requests for academic accommodations in one place, and view details of their accommodation arrangements, such as in-class work, exams, quizzes, etc.
  • Connect with instructors and support staff regarding their accommodations.
  • Upload required documentation for their accommodations.
  • Select which courses they would like accommodations applied to.
