Living With Accessibility Issues - Gradifying Blog

Posted on July 28, 2014 by Dustin Washburn

Our posts this month have engaged in conversation about what accessibility is and how Queen’s has been involved in improving accessibility. Queen’s has been making a number of great efforts to make its resources accessible to all students. But what about off-campus life? Just as it is important for students to have access to resources on campus, they also need to be able to find accommodations that meet their needs. Lisa Figge is a PhD candidate in Cultural Studies at Queen’s whose research and art practice engages with disability and who requires a mobility scooter to be mobile. I had the opportunity to discuss with her the experience of finding accessible accommodations in Kingston.
