The Accessibility Services Office (AS) facilitates the inclusion of students with a range of disabilities into all aspects of university life. Services are provided to students with a documented disability whether physical, sensory, a learning disability or a mental health condition. Students with temporary disability (e.g. broken arm) are also eligible for the service. Even if you never need any accommodations, you can relax knowing you can access them if necessary. Accommodations may include note-taking services, alternative format textbooks, and exam-writing support.
The Academic Success Centre provides a range of supports to help you reach your academic potential. Meet one-on-one with a learning strategist, access online resources, try a drop-in-session or workshop.

They also support students to develop skills in problem solving, active study, critical thinking, and concentration.
