Physical Accessibility


Due to the natural terrain and on-going enhancements to better campus, individuals are encouraged to review both Campus Maps and current construction projects to help with route planning and allocating sufficient time to navigate campus. To see the location of access ramps on campus, select "Accessibility" as the Location option in Campus Maps. Current construction projects are listed on the Planning, Design and Construction site.
