Section Two: Using Disability Services and Accommodations
Campus Accessibility And Reporting Barriers
De Anza is a relatively accessible campus. There are a few classrooms that have alternate wheelchair entrances. The campus map is marked with access features, but should you need assistance, see your DSS counselor. If you encounter a barrier or a temporarily inaccessible route, contact DSS. You may be asked to file a Barrier Report Form, if necessary, which will help us evaluate the problem and develop a solution.
Students with Department of Motor Vehicle disabled person placards or plates do not need to purchase a De Anza parking sticker. Parking is permitted in any specially marked disability parking place or in any staff-designated space or lot. Parking is not permitted in walkways, on lawns, or other locations generally considered illegal.
Steps to receive a De Anza disability permit:
Students are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the campus and locate their classrooms before the quarter begins. Please contact the Student Assistance office in Seminar 10 if you would like help locating your classrooms or need escort service to a special campus appointment.
Campus Services Assistance
Students who need assistance in the cafeteria, bookstore or library should contact a staff member in that location with their request. Please be aware that if the staff is busy you may have to wait or return later. If you will require assistance during a typically busy time, it is advisable to prearrange an appointment with staff.
