Navigating Access Barriers

RIT is dedicated to accessibility and inclusion for people with disabilities. If you encounter an access barrier, the Disability Services Office is here to help.


Any member of the RIT community may use the Report an Access Barrier form below to share information about access barriers encountered. The Disability Services Office will review the submissions and pass on necessary information to appropriate campus partners to address any issues. Please note that this form can be completed either anonymously or with personal contact information. If you include contact information, you can expect a follow up from the Disability Services Office.
