All activities that happen on campus or are sponsored by the campus are accessible to persons with disabilities. This includes University-sponsored events for the student body, employees, alumni, or the public. It also includes any event sponsored by a campus group, whether held on or off campus.
Any student needing accommodations due to a disabling condition should contact the person in charge of the event as soon as possible. For large events, more advance notice may be required. The amount of time needed to make the arrangements will be relative to the size of the event. Certain accommodations require more lead-time, such as hiring interpreters and obtaining material in braille or large print.
The ODS staff is available for consultation and assistance with these events. However, the primary contact person is the event sponsor.
The accommodations process regarding housing is the same as for other accommodations. However, requests for specific housing accommodations should be made as early as possible. Determination of appropriate accommodations will be made on a case-by-case basis. Accessible housing is available on campus. Housing requests will be addressed on a first-come, first served basis.
Individuals with temporary disabilities who require accommodation are welcome to utilize the ODS. All policies and procedures remain the same, although the laws regarding the rights and protection of persons with disabilities may not apply.
Cleveland State University provides ample accessible parking in a variety of locations across campus. State of Ohio-issued hangtags with the appropriate designation should be clearly displayed. Persons with disabilities are responsible for the payment of all applicable parking fees or other parking charges.
