Accessibility at Union College

Accessibility

Union College is committed to providing equal opportunity to persons with disabilities, including equal access to participate in and benefit from College programs, services and activities provided through electronic and information technology (EIT). It is important that accessibility is in the forefront as we update, design, build, acquire or use new EIT.

Accessibility for students

The office also helps with dining and housing accommodations. Students may register for accommodations in the accommodative services office through the link provided, the register page.
