ADA Compliance Office

The University of Florida, under the guidelines of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and 504 federal legislation, is required to make reasonable accommodations to the known physical and mental limitations of otherwise qualified individuals with disabilities.

To help provide the best possible service to students, staff, faculty and visitors, the University of Florida has an ADA Compliance Office with a coordinator responsible for access for persons with disabilities. The ADA coordinator assists anyone with questions about access.

For information regarding access to telecommunication, alternate print publications, physical access, transportation, interpreters for the hearing impaired, or any other disability-related issue, please see contact information on right side menu.
