Accessibility Tour: Wayfinding, Skywalks and Resources
Raising Awareness, Connecting with Campus Partners
Monday, April 10, 2023 · 12 - 1 PM
Navigating UMBC's campus-on-a-hill as a person with a disability brings out overt and sometimes more subtle features of its accessible design. Join us to learn more and discuss:
What are the features? We have many, including a Skywalk and several upgrades that happened while we were remote.
What are the bugs? Learn more about how work with situations, whether it's contacting Work Control for a repair (410-455-2550), reporting an accessibility concern, or working with campus partners, such as Facilities Management and DoIT to support inclusion. Accessibility is everyone's responsibility.
During colder weather we begin at Accessibility & Disability Services' conference room, 222 - learn the skywalk and tunnel connections within the Academic Core, review Adaptive Computing within the Library, and visit the reception area of Retriever Integrated Health - which supports both physical and mental health. The tour is limited to a small group, and please know that mask use is VERY WELCOME.
Can't make the day or time? More tours are planned. Have a (small) group? Email us to set up a day and time that works for the occasion.
