Building Access

WIU maintains compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as amended. As our core values suggest, we are committed to providing equal opportunities and access for all. There are many ways in which WIU seeks to not only meet minimal legal standards, but to go above and beyond what is required by law. When possible, WIU designs buildings in a manner that offers a greater degree of accessibility and convenience for a variety of situations through the implementation of universal design (UD) strategies. Also known as human-centered design, UD is a process rooted in architecture that can be applied to all aspects of higher education to create inclusive, equitable and sustainable environments that welcome a diverse population.

Historical Buildings

Some buildings on campus were built prior the enactment of disability legislation mandating the removal of architectural barriers. Barrier removal in historical structures can be a challenge. However, WIU is committed to providing the most equitable access possible. As such, historical buildings have been retrofitted to account for use by a diverse population.
