Physical disabilities

Do you need a larger font to be able to read books? Do you need help for taking a book from the shelf? Is it difficult for you to travel between campuses?

Persons with physical disabilities can call for assistance from the Study Advice and Student Counselling Service.

In the University of Antwerp Library persons with a visual disability find a Vocatex screen that combines magnifying and speech technology. It allows you to magnify texts and watch images, even when the quality of the original text or image is poor. The screen is located on the second floor, in the reading room of Law.

All libraries of the University of Antwerp Library are accessible for persons in a wheelchair. 

In 2012 an accessibility analysis was carried out for the library of the Stadscampus by Toegankelijk Vlaanderen.
