Reasonable Accommodations for Visitors:

While many venues may be readily accessible, specific reasonable accommodations do require planning on the part of the University program or activity (e.g., an ASL interpreter, Computer Aided Realtime Captioning, accessible technology or equipment, or unique needs of an individual).

To ensure that reasonable accommodations can be made for an event, program or service in a timely manner, the individual requesting the accommodation should contact the host of the event or the event department listed within the event or program announcement.  Requests for reasonable accommodations should be made prior to the event. Some reasonable accommodations require planning time to arrange the appropriate accommodations, so please contact the event host with enough time to make the appropriate arrangements in a timely manner. If needed, the event planner or department will work with Rutgers Access and Disability Resources regarding requests for accommodations to ensure the appropriate accommodations are in place for the event, program or activity.  

Guests or visitors who need assistance or further information related to how to request reasonable accommodations for events, programs, or activities at Rutgers should contact Rutgers Access and Disability Resources at 848-445-4499 or radr@echo.rutgers.edu.
