One wheelchair accessible station for each 20 stations (5%). Wheelchair stations should meet the following specifications1:
Access to wheelchair stations requires a passage no narrower at any point than 32" (e.g. a doorway) and 36" continuously (e.g. the aisle). The space required for a wheelchair to make a 180-degree turn is a clear space 60 inches in diameter or an equivalent T-shaped space2.
All computers should have the following campus standard software installed:
(These utilities are available as install options within both Windows and Mac operating systems).
Trackballs, trackpads, and ergonomic keyboards should be installed promptly on a request basis. These items are available for semester-long checkout from Student Computing.
Requests for other accommodations should be discussed promptly with Accessibility Resource Center. Once ARC has verified the need for accommodation, a representative from the department will meet with ARC and IT Support Services to determine the best method of accommodation. Implementation of the accommodation is the responsibility of the department, with assistance from ITSS.
