Campus Accessibility

A campus that’s accessible to everyone

At Indiana University Bloomington, we’re committed to providing an inclusive and accessible campus environment for all of our students, faculty, staff, and visitors, including those with disabilities. We strive to offer accessible options for all aspects of daily life on campus. If you encounter any accessibility barriers on campus, we encourage you to report them so we can make improvements.

Single-use handicapped accessible parking pass

This pass is available for first-time visitors to the Office of Disability Services for Students. If you have mobility impairments, it allows you to park in the Wells Library lot while meeting with staff. Call ahead to make arrangements or call from the ADA accessible parking lot at the library and a staff person will bring you a permit (during business hours).

Service and emotional support animals

The use of service animals such as guide dogs is covered under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). With a few exceptions (due to health and safety concerns), service dogs are permitted anywhere the handler is permitted on the IU Bloomington campus.

The use of emotional support animals is not covered under the ADA. Emotional support animals are permitted on campus only with prior approval in the residence halls.
