Accessibility Services

Accessibility Services offers various services, resources and programs to facilitate the inclusion of students with disabilities into all aspects of university life. They assist in navigating disability-related barriers to students' academic success at U of T for ongoing or temporary disabilities. They provide services and support for learning, problem-solving and inclusion.

Services are provided to students with documented disabilities. Disabilities can be physical, sensory, related to learning, or a mental health condition. Students with temporary disabilities (e.g. broken arm) are also eligible for the service. 

Accessibility Services supports students through:

To receive academic and practicum accommodations, students must register with Accessibility Services. Additionally, students can also review the Student Handbooks to learn more about navigating the accommodations process.

On-Location Accessibility Advisor

At U of T Engineering, we have an accessibility advisor who works on-location with our students. The role of an accessibility advisor is to work with a student to develop an academic accommodation plan and support students to address accessibility issues throughout their studies. Our on-location advisor also supports staff and faculty with better navigating the requirements of the accommodation process. Please note that Engineering students may be supported by the on-location advisor or the central team at Accessibility Services.

To book an appointment with an accessibility advisor, register with Accessibility Services or contact them at or 416-978-8060.

How it Works

Prior to receiving accommodations, the Accessibility Advisor will review your  Intake Package and discuss any barriers or difficulties you have been experiencing in your academic progress to develop effective accommodations.

Where appropriate, students are referred to one of Accessibility Service's professionals (e.g. Adaptive Technologist Consultant, Learning Strategist) for further support.

All discussions are kept confidential with Accessibility Services and information is only disclosed outside Accessibility Services with the student’s permission.
