Accessibility Services


We look forward to working with you. 

Accessibility Services provides accommodations to the learning environment for students with speech, hearing, visual, physical, mental health and neurological disabilities as well as chronic health conditions, acquired brain injury and temporary disabilities.

When you meet with us, we will discuss eligibility for services and specific accommodations to support you during your time at Emily Carr.


Our priority is to get to know you as an individual, to determine relevant accommodations, and to suggest helpful strategies and resources while you study. Understanding your needs helps us to build a learning environment that is accessible and supportive.

The process of requesting and receiving accommodations is collaborative; all involved, the student, instructor, studio technician and accessibility services have a role and responsibility to make sure the process works.

SUCCESS TIP: Get organized! Ask for help, connect to a support system, and set up your accommodation early. 


To be eligible for accommodations, you'll need to provide recent documentation, completed by a qualified medical professional, that shows how your disability affects you in a learning environment.

For more information on documentation, visit our Forms + Info page.


Accessibility Services is located within Student Services, room 100, North Building.
