          Edinboro University prides itself on providing accessibility for individuals with disabilities and educating the campus community on the importance of accessibility and universal design in facility and curriculum planning wherever possible. The concept of universal design in higher education strives to shift the focus from developing special strategies or accommodations for a few, to good design for many. This may be applied to physical or instructional design.

          Our picturesque 585-acre campus boasts facilities that are accessible to our community members and guests. While the standards set forth in the Americans with Disabilities Act set a minimum threshold for designing buildings, Edinboro strives to expand universal design of the physical environment in all of its recent renovation and construction projects. Highlights of accessibility and universal design at Edinboro include:

          • Clearly identified crosswalks, identified by curb cuts and transitional material differences
          • Ramps and elevators to enable access to all campus facilities
          • A covered, elevated walkway to link two sides of campus, bridging uneven terrain and reducing vehicular-pedestrian travel conflicts
          • Automatic, proximity or remote door opening devices
          • Accessible classroom, laboratory, meeting and extra-curricular facilities
