Policies & Recommendations

The Fredericton Campus of the University of New Brunswick has worked with the University Management Council to publicly adopt a statement of commitment to universal accessibility on campus. The approved statement is:

UNB Accessibility 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. The University accepts as a priority that future construction of campus facilities, including buildings, parking areas, pedestrian routes, and related infrastructure, will incorporate principles of universal design and barrier-free access. Recognizing our special challenges, e.g., the topography and legacy of old buildings on the Fredericton campus, the University is working and will continue to work towards the renovation of existing facilities to ensure accessibility for students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors who may have a disability."
