1. Physical Accessibility on Campus
  2. Centres
  3. Future Development of Spaces, Buildings and Wayfinding

We aim to make our campus accessible by not only eliminating physical barriers that exist, but by also solving access issues in the planning of future development of spaces and buildings on campus.

Physical Accessibility on Campus

  • Tunnels: All buildings on campus are linked by well-lit tunnels open all day, year round. The tunnel system, which opened in the 1960s and provided access to students with disabilities, is outlined on the interactive Campus Map.
  • Residences: There are many options for Carleton students with disabilities who wish to live in residence.
  • My Classroom: Connects students and instructors to resources and information about accessibility in each classroom.
  • Transportation: An interactive map shows where paraTranspo buses can be accessed.
