Michigan State University is committed to providing equal opportunity for full participation in programs, services, and activities. RCPD has compiled resources that promote and advance accessibility across campus.
Architectural Accessibility Suggestion Form
MSU strives to employ concepts of universal design to integrate accessibility features in new and existing structures. Each year the university sets aside funds for new projects that further the goal of maximizing access to all campus facilities. Working closely with Institutional Space, Planning, and Management and other campus units, an active plan for addressing any architectural issues that arise is well underway. We maintain an online suggestion box that invites students, staff, and visitors to identify these architectural issues for improvement.
Office of the ADA Coordinator
MSU’s Office of the ADA Coordinator facilitates the University’s compliance with its Disability & Reasonable Accommodation, Anti-Discrimination and Web Accessibility policies, as well as state and federal anti-discrimination laws.
For more information regarding accessibility, disability discrimination, or disability accommodations, please contact Tracy Leahy, Director of the ADA Coordinator Office & ADA/Section 504 Coordinator.
Campus and Community Partnerships
Visit our Campus & Community Partnerships page to learn more about disability community building efforts occurring on campus as well as community resources and partnerships.
All Gender & Accessible Campus Restrooms
The Office of Planning & Budgets provides a map of location of all restrooms on campus designated as single-occupant restrooms. Students, employees, and visitors at Michigan State University may use the restroom that corresponds with their gender identity. For ease of identifying the restroom that best meets individual needs, the map's marking pins have been color coded to differentiate between accessible and non-accessible restrooms.
MSU also offers several lactation/wellness rooms across campus. They can be found here.
Our website was designed to meet the needs of people with disabilities using assistive technologies. We designed it to meet WC3 AA and MSU accessibility standards.
MSU provides a web access site containing resources to ensure cross-campus accessibility in web content.
