Access and Inclusion Services

Creating an accessible, equitable and inclusive learning environment.

Mount Royal University is committed to access, diversity and equity. Our department assists the University in creating an accessible learning environment that encourages full participation in academic courses for students experiencing disabilities.

Reasonable accommodations are tailored to the individual, flexible, and are determined by considering the barriers within the unique environment of a post-secondary institution.

We encourage student development and educate Mount Royal University about becoming a more accessible, equitable and inclusive learning environment.

Students and faculty alike can get the most current information about your accommodations, book appointments, request exam seatings and Accommodation Letters, and find helpful tips through your Accommodate portal.
