Barrier-free design features

Residences at Western

All of Western’s residences, with the exception of Medway-Sydenham Hall, are accessible to persons with disabilities. Additionally, five of the residences, Essex Hall, Elgin Hall, Perth Hall, Ontario Hall and London Hall have incorporated a number of barrier-free design features, including specially designed suites. For more information on the amenities available in these residences, please see the Residences at Western web page.

Special Needs Requests

The Residence Admissions Office will consider special needs requests from students with disabilities on the basis that being 'assigned elsewhere will greatly affect their quality of life'. The reasons for such requests include serious impairments, physical ability challenges, exceptionally severe allergies or other permanent or ongoing medical conditions that would in some way affect the general wellbeing of the resident. Please note the deadlines for submission are dependant on the student’s year of study. For more information, please go to the Special Needs Accommodation page on the Residence at Western webpage.
