Accessibility

Niagara College is accessible in most areas, with designated parking (requires Ministry of Transportation Ontario Permit) near every building at all campus locations.

Elevators, electronic door openers, and ramps allow unimpaired mobility from one area of the building to the other. Also, the Student Residences offer several accessible rooms. We are working on an ongoing basis to alleviate other accessibility barriers.
