Disabled access in our university
The physical, mental and social environment of our university is structured to allow everyone in the university community to work on an equal footing. Having a barrier-free campus is a value and advantage shared by the entire community but it is especially important for those who have a disability, limitations due to their age or are members of cultural and linguistic minorities.
