Accessible and Inclusive Accommodations

Accessibility

The School of Architecture and Planning strives to create an inclusive environment for anyone who wishes to participate in our programs and events. Our facilities on UB’s South Campus are ADA accessible and accommodate the use of most mobility devices. Upon request, we are able to provide communication accommodations like ASL interpreters or assisted listening devices for our public lectures and events. For these requests or other specific accommodations, please contact us two weeks prior to the program or event.

Gender-neutral restrooms
UB community members are entitled to use restroom facilities that are consistent with their gender identity and expression. We know that for many this means having access to a single-user, or gender-neutral facility. The School of Architecture and Planning provides a single-user restroom facility on the 4th floor of Hayes Hall.
