Access Services

The Student Accessibility Centre (Halifax Campus) and the Student Success Centre (Agricultural Campus) serve as Dalhousie’s centres of expertise on student access and accommodation. The work of our access centres is governed by Dalhousie’s Student Accommodation Policy, to best support the needs of our students. We advise students who require accommodation to ensure full access to their on-campus living and learning communities.  

Student Accessibility advisors can help you:

  • implement an accommodation plan to reduce or remove barriers to your learning 
  • provide access to technology supports to enhance your learning
  • identify scholarship and bursary options 
  • connect with on and off-campus resources
  • navigate accessibility challenges

If you’ve had accommodations previously, or have questions about accommodations, early consultation with an advisor is strongly encouraged. An advisor will meet with you to determine how to facilitate your success, and if accommodations are required, we implement those accommodations by liaising with your instructors. We also consult with faculty, staff, parents and prospective students, who have questions regarding access and accommodation.
