Building Accessibility

 

Barrier Notice

Samford University is committed to equal access and the civil rights of people with disabilities, and so strives to remove barriers to its programs wherever they may exist through systematic barrier removal, proper and timely maintenance, encouraging universal design, etc. In the event you encounter a barrier on the SU campus, such as an inoperative elevator, bicycles blocking an access ramp, or problems in the Technology Labs, we need you to help us identify them so the University can maintain access by removing barriers as quickly as possible.  

Reports about barriers may be made by submitting detailed information to disability@samford.edu.  Information submitted does not constitute a formal complaint or grievance. However, SU will follow up in as timely a manner as possible.
