Accessibility Fund

Eligibility:

The fund is intended to provide events based support, and is open to all full and part time U of T students.

 

Application:
  • Students requiring an accommodation for a Hart House based event should emailaccessibility@harthouse.caa minimum of 2 weeks in advance, with their request.
  • The email should include their name, student number, contact information and the details of their accommodation request and the event they would like to attend.
  • Requests will be considered on a first-come first-served basis.
