Disability Access & Compliance

Dear campus community:

The UC Berkeley community celebrates disability awareness in October each year, and this year is especially meaningful as it is the 30th anniversary of the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The Berkeley campus is the home of the Disability Rights/Independent Living Movement and we are excited to share several announcements and events related to disability awareness.

Dear Campus Community,

We’re writing to share an update on our plans for the spring semester. We know that many of you are eager to make plans for instruction and housing. While not all decisions have been finalized, we hope this information will be helpful in your planning.

As was the case when we announced our plans for the fall, these decisions are dependent on approval from local public health authorities. We must recognize that we continue to operate amid great uncertainty, as uncomfortable as that may be.
