                   Welcome to AccessAbility Services

AccessAbility Online - Goodbye triplicate forms!

We've launched our new Online System which will provide a convenient, efficient, and confidential method for students to register with the office, and to request accommodations.

Training Sessions:  For the month of September, we will be offering 1 hour student training sessions to help you better understand how to manage your account with the online system.

When:  Every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday at 10 am, 2 pm and 5 pm (For the month of September)

Where: AccessAbility Services

Reserve your space by calling 519-888-4567 Ext. 35082 or by emailing access@uwaterloo.ca. Bring your laptop or smart phone to practice using the system throughout the training.  

If you require an individual session, or are unavailable during the scheduled sessions, please contact us to make alternate arrangements.

Accommodations for Exams

It is your responsibility to book your exams online and check the exam schedule posted on AccessAbility Online and on the Student Portal.

Term tests: must be booked online no later than 7 days prior to the exam or by the last drop date (November 18th), whichever comes sooner.

Finals: must be booked online by November 18, 2016.

If a midterm is listed to take place in less than 7 days from the date of submission, it may not be accommodated in the exam centre. 

Retroactive accommodations will be addressed on a case by case basis.
