An accessibility audit of the university’s built environment will commence during reading week with a pilot audit of Stirling Hall and Jeffery Hall.

The pilot audit will test the data collection and reporting methodology before the first phase of the project begins in April 2015. Over a two-year period, the university will audit approximately 6-million square-feet of interior and exterior space in academic and administration buildings, libraries, student centres and any other buildings expected to undergo capital upgrades, updates or renovations.
