The Accessibility Hub is a central online resource for accessibility at Queen’s. It will serve to elevate inclusion and improve access for everyone on our campus. The Accessibility Hub will not only provide support and feedback concerning accessibility initiatives, it will also serve as an online community for those seeking information on disability and accessibility issues on campus, and assist the university in meeting its obligations under the AODA. Learn more about Queen's Accessibility Initiatives.

Queen’s University is committed to building a campus community that is inclusive for all individuals, and ensuring that its services, supports and spaces are accessible for persons with disabilities.

We are a community that works together to create an environment where everyone has a full and enriching Queen’s experience.

Successful learning, living, and employment outcomes are the result of a shared responsibility and commitment on the part of students, staff, faculty, and senior administrators towards removing and preventing barriers to participation.

Accessibility means:

every student, staff and faculty member feels welcomed and supported on the Queen’s campus, and that it is a truly inclusive community where we all have equal access to what we need to learn, discover, think and do our very best work.
