Students Living with Disabilities

13% of the student population at UPEI is registered with some kind of diagnosis at Accessibility Services, so you are not alone.

NSO will do what we can to support the needs of the students participating. When registering for NSO, there are 3 questions regarding accessibility where you can identify any needs or accommodations you might need. We will contact those individuals before NSO to see how we can support them during the week.
