We have moved to AA142!

AccessAbility Services has moved to the Arts & Administration Building, AA142.

This space was formerly occupied by the Registrar's Office. AccessAbility Services telephone numbers, email addresses, and hours of operations remain the same.

Drop-In Hours

Monday to Friday from 12:00pm – 1:00pm


Monday to Thursday from 3:00pm – 3:40pm.

Please note: Drop-ins are on a First-come, first-served basis and will increase from 15 min to 20 min each.

Students will see whichever Disability Consultant is available at that time. We will make every effort to link students with their primary consultant for the drop-in appointment but please note that there is no guarantee.

Please remember that drop in appointments will be scheduled for no longer than 20 minutes.  As such, students should book formal appointments if they need to discuss something at length.  Please speak to your consultant or the front line staff if you are unsure about whether you need to book an hour-long appointment or whether a drop in session will suffice.
