The Access Lounge was initiated by the Accessibility Director, Mohamed Behi, in the 2016/17 year. Mohamed worked with the board of directors, executive team and UWSA along with U of W staff to develop a consultation process for students to give their input. Today, the Access Lounge reflects the needs and wants from students who gave their input during our consultations sessions or through our online survey.
This project was completed with the support of the Disability Justice Collective (formerly UWSAccess), a student group working to bring together, advocate for and support students with disabilities/disabled students/mad students/students who are mentally ill/ neurodivergent students. Students who experience any form of disability are welcome to join.
