Reasonable Accommodations for Guests and Visitors

Wesleyan University is committed to making its educational programs and facilities accessible to people with disabilities. Reasonable accommodations can be provided by departments, programs and event organizers at the request of guests and visitors with disabilities. Accommodations that are considered reasonable are those that do not fundamentally alter the nature of the institution's programs and policies, and do not place an undue hardship on the institution. Reasonable accommodations are distinguished from services of a personal nature (such as provision of wheel chairs, personal care assistance, etc.) which the university does not provide. 

Arrangements should be made in advance of the actual visitation date. A minimum of ten business days notice is recommended for any accommodation. Please note that while accommodations that involve professional services (i.e., interpreters, transcription, etc.) will typically require ten business days to arrange, less notice might be sufficient to provide enlarged print or electronic copies of handouts or program brochures.

Accessible parking spots and restrooms are available throughout campus.  Parking spots are marked on the Accessibility MapRestrooms are listed within the description of each building in the “Building List."  Vehicles displaying a valid state-issued permit may park in designated handicapped zones on campus. Contact the Office of Public Safety at (860) 685-2345 if you have further parking needs.
