Student Accessibility Services (SAS)

Brandon University is committed to providing equality of opportunity for students enrolled in all programs of study. The Student Accessibility office works with students and faculty to ensure reasonable academic accommodations and access are available for students who may experience barriers related to a temporary, chronic or permanent disability or medical condition. Students seeking accommodations or who have access needs are encouraged to contact the Student Accessibility Coordinator as early as possible.

New to Student Accessibility?

If you are a student with a disability and are experiencing barriers, or suspect you may be experiencing a disability, and are new to accessing SAS, please complete the following Student Information Form.

You will be contacted within two weeks of receipt of this information for an initial meeting with the SAS Coordinator.

We are open and ready to support students virtually!

During Fall term, SAS staff will continue to exercise social distancing by meeting with students virtually and by appointment only.  We are not accepting walk-ins at this time.

Current SAS Students

Current SAS students are invited to schedule a 30-minute appointment to discuss accessibility or accommodation needs, including letters of accommodation, Student Aid, or communicating with faculty. If you wish to discuss your accommodations or talk about ideas to support your learning, do not hesitate to schedule an appointment.

Fall 2021 – For students whose accommodations have not changed and do not require an appointment, please complete this Accommodation Letter Request link as early in the term as possible.  Your accommodation letters will be emailed to you and your professor within 2-3 working days of submitting the request.

Current SAS students may book an appointment here:

Schedule Appointment with Michelle Magnusson or call 204-727-9737.
