On Campus Attendant Care Services
These services are for students with disabilities who need assistance while studying at college.
By requesting this service, you may receive non-medical assistance provided by Support Service Attendants trained and provided by the Ontario March of Dimes. This program is funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and is at no cost to the student or teacher.
Students requiring on-campus attendant services are encouraged to contact the Niagara Branch of the Ontario March of Dimes by telephone at 905-687-8484.

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.
