Te Ata Kūtoro - the pathway of allowing accessibility

Our Role:

Supporting students with impairments to be successful in their studies.

Our Vision:

The Accessibility Services Vision is to work collaboratively with students at the University of Waikato to empower individuals with impairments to reach their goals and achieve their full academic potential.

Core Values:

  • Empowerment
  • Collaboration
  • Professionalism
  • Accessibility
  • Diversity

The University of Waikato is committed to providing equity in education and works to ensure that students with impairments have access to all areas of campus life and the student experience.  Our Accessibility Service strives to make our University more inclusive and accessible as well as having equity of opportunity for success.

Although registration is welcome at any time, all students with impairments or support needs are encouraged to register with Accessibility Services before coming to University or very early in their studies. This will ensure the right supports for the students unique needs.
