Student Accessibility Services

Student Accessibility Services remains open to support you virtually. We are connecting with students via email, telephone and video conference. To book a new appointment via telephone or video conference, email your accessibility counsellor directly—they will respond to your request as soon as possible (normally within 24 hours). If you do not hear back from your Accessibility Counsellor, you can email sasinfo@yorku.ca. Please note: our staff do not check email outside of office hours.

As drop-in times are no longer available, please book an appointment with your counsellor while we explore different ways to meet students’ needs.
