The university provides notice of service interruption in the event of a planned or unexpected disruption in the facilities or services typically used by people with disabilities to access campus goods and services. 

About service alerts and interruptions

Notices of service interruption include the reason for the disruption, the anticipated duration, a description of alternate facilities or services (if available), as well as accessible routes for making one’s way to these alternate facilities and services. The notice is placed in conspicuous campus locations and, when appropriate, on this site.

The University of Ottawa is proud to offer an inclusive environment to its entire community. We invite you to send us comments and suggestions on accessibility that will help us to keep on improving the level of accessibility campus-wide.  For more information on accessibility at the University of Ottawa, please visit About Accessibility.
