Q: What about accessibility?
All the main campus buildings are accessible, and we offer a range of accessible housing types. The campus is on hilly terrain, and there is not a continuous accessible pathway throughout the grounds. Each building has its own accessible path and is connected to a public way. To transport guests to and from the parking area and to ensure access between buildings that do not share an accessible path, we offer an accessible shuttle.
