Student Accessibility Services provides Services for Students with Disabilities and Medical Conditions

Student Accessibility Services (SAS) coordinates services and facilitates the provision of reasonable academic accommodations for students with temporary and/or permanent disabilities/medical conditions.  SAS staff collaborates with students, staff and faculty in developing strategies for a successful learning experience while maintaining the academic standards and integrity of the University. Student Accessibility Services offers a supportive atmosphere where our services are delivered in a respectful, confidential manner.

Students can be registered with SAS for a wide variety of disabilities/medical conditions including:

  • Learning Disabilities
  • Psychiatric or Mental Health
  • Acquired Brain Injuries
  • Vision
  • ADHD
  • Chronic Medical Conditions
  • Mobility
  • Hearing

Accommodations are provided on an individual basis, supported by each student’s documented functional limitations.

*Students with functional limitations that impair academic functioning may request interim accommodations pending the submission of disability documentation.

Student Accessibility Services considers the privacy and confidentiality of students to be of paramount importance.

  • All information and documentation provided to SAS is confidential
  • Registering with SAS and receiving academic accommodations while at Lakehead University will not be reflected on a student's official university records, test results, academic transcripts or graduation documentation.

If you have a disability/medical condition which may affect your educational studies or you would like more information about our services, we encourage you to contact us.
