Students with special needs

If you are planning to live in residence, please complete our Special Room Assignment Consideration form. This will help us assign your room and customize it to meet your needs.

Accessibility at UNB

As per UNB’s Statement of Principle, “the University of New Brunswick must be known as an institution of inclusion. In accordance with this objective, the University will make its best efforts to ensure there is barrier-free access to learning and employment for qualified people who have different types of disabilities.”

Many of our buildings on the Fredericton campus have been built or renovated to make them more accessible. Ramps allow easy access, elevators have been installed in several residences and some rooms can be customized to meet special needs.

Residents in all houses welcome students with disabilities into house activities and the residence community as a whole.

For more information on accessibility at the University of New Brunswick, Fredericton campus, contact the Student Accessibility Centre.

Special dietary requirements

If you have special dietary requirements, please book an appointment with our campus dietician at the Student Health Centre. Our dietician can assist Sodexo (our campus food provider) with special food or menu recommendations to accommodate your needs.

Dietary information is posted at each meal time in our campus dining halls for your convenience.
