Accessibility

What is an accessible university? APUS advocates on behalf of students facing barriers of accessibility to the University, and post-secondary education more generally. Our approach to accessibility is broad – our accessibility initiatives focus on physical accessibility, as well as mental health, gender neutral spaces, and financial accessibility.

Great Barrier Hunt

Previously, APUS along with some of our campus partners, have conducted audits of spaces at the University of Toronto. Conducting this audit allows us to assess the barriers to participation for various communities. In previous years, we have audited the new Transitional Year Program building, The Goldring Centre for High Performance Sport, Gerstein Library and our very own office. What will we audit this year?

Ongoing Advocacy

As an organization, APUS advocates on behalf of students to make the three campuses of the University of Toronto more accessible. If you encounter or are aware of specific barriers to access, please contact us.
