University Event Accommodations

Ensuring that all qualified university members have access to university programs and activities is critical to our educational mission and is among our highest priorities. As a part of this commitment, UWF complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act as amended in 2008 to ensure non-discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of the University of West Florida's services and programs, including university sponsored events.

Guests attending university sponsored events who would like to request disability accommodations are requested to advise UWF by contacting the ADA Program Office at (850) 474-2518 or 711 (TTY). Guests may also advise UWF online by submitting the UWF Sponsored Event Accommodation Request Form.

Accommodation requests must be submitted at least two (2) business days prior to the scheduled event. Advance planning and early submission of an accommodation request will allow proper time for UWF to coordinate the requested services.

The ADA Program Office is available to assist departments with planning accessible events. The department sponsoring the event is fiscally responsible for costs associated with providing the reasonable accommodation(s) for the event.

For more information, or to request this page or the UWF Sponsored Event Accommodation Request Form in an alternative format, please contact the ADA Program Office at or (850) 474-2518.
