UBC is piloting the UBC Accessibility Shuttle for people with conditions that impact their mobility, who need assistance traveling to and from main pedestrian areas on campus. The shuttle is a free, shared ride service available only by reservation.
Beginning in Fall 2018, you will be able to book the UBC Accessibility Shuttle on the same day as your ride. Please visit this page again in September for more details.
Accessibility on campus
UBC Wayfinding can help you identify accessible entrances and distinguish between power and manual doors.
If you are a student and getting around campus is a challenge due to a disability, you may qualify for early course registration or be eligible to request that your class is moved. You will need to be registered with Access & Diversity.
If you have a visual impairment that requires mobility training on campus, please contact Access & Diversity.
Not all TransLink stops are wheelchair-accessible. Plan a route that works for you.
