Creating an accessible, equitable and inclusive learning environment.

Mount Royal University is committed to access, diversity and equity. Accessibility Services 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.
