Although most of Oregon State University is located within a historic district, the university has worked to make buildings/classrooms physically accessible.  However, some of our historic buildings may still have accessibility challenges. In order to accommodate students with disabilities, DAS may need to relocate class sections into facilities that are more accessible. Please visit the Accessible Building Information page for more information. 

Classes may be relocated if the building/class is not physically accessible, does not meet other disability related needs or travel time between buildings is not sufficient.  Students who need additional time to move between buildings may need Priority Registration to accommodate this need. Students should connect with their DAS advisor in situations where avoiding back-to-back courses is beyond the control of the student.

Process

Every term, students who need accessible classroom/classroom relocation should follow the process below.

  • Before requesting a classroom relocation, please review the accessibility of the building/classroom to determine if the space will meet your needs https://registrar.oregonstate.edu/web-viewer
    1. On the right-hand side of the page, scroll down to select the building.
    2. Click on the building name and all rooms in that building will appear.
    3. Click on the room number you want to see more information.
    4. A popup window will appear with information on the feature of the room.
    5. Scroll down and you will see pictures of the building and when possible, the classroom.  
  • Students are encouraged to request classroom relocation accommodations within 48 hours of registering for their classes.  Due to the time involved to relocate a class, requests to relocate a classroom should be made at least four (4) weeks prior to the start of the term.
  • If you need one or more of your classes relocated, log into the DAS Online system and request to have the class(es) relocated.
  • Classroom relocation requests made with less than (four) 4 weeks prior to the beginning of the term may result in the student not having access to the class until after the start of the term.

If students are concerned a classroom may not meet their needs, or have questions about campus accessibility, please contact DAS at 541-737-4098. 

It is important to note:

  • DAS will work with the Registrar Office and faculty to find another room that will meet the objectives of the course and instructional requirements of the faculty.
  • Classes with specific health and safety equipment such as ventilation hoods, eye washing stations, etc. may not be possible to relocate.
  • Classes that require specially equipped classrooms or where moving a class would fundamentally alter the nature of a class or program may not be possible to relocate.
  • If a classroom cannot be relocated, DAS will work with the student, faculty member and the Registrar’s office to determine options and next steps.
  • OSU is in the process of renovating our facilities in order to make OSU universally accessible to all. For more information about our recent efforts, see the OSU Accessibility Website.
