Accessibility

Building access

While our main building on Ho Plaza is under construction (though summer 2017), you’ll find our accessible entrance beneath our building underpass off of Campus Road (see diagram here). An elevator connects visitors to each floor, and all floors have universal and accessible bathrooms.

The entrance to our Physical Therapy and Massage services on Campus Road is also wheelchair accessible.

Parking and transportation

Our main building has two handicap-permit Parkmobile parking spaces for patients and clients beneath our building underpass (see details on our Getting Here page). Our Physical Therapy and Massage office has limited metered parking next to the entrance.

If you need to make arrangements for accessible parking or transportation on campus or in the local area, refer to Cornell's accessible transportation options information

Both TCAT (the Ithaca-area bus service) and the local taxi service (607-277-7777 or 607-588-8888) have wheelchair-accessible vehicles.

Additional accessibility resources

Our Student Disability Resources staff facilitate services and accommodations for students with disabilities. Please visit the Student Disability Services website for more information.

Language translation services

We have a telephone-based language translation service with more than 200 languages offered for students who feel more comfortable communicating with their health care provider in their native language. If you are interested in using this service, please call to schedule your appointment (607-255-5155) and request the service when you speak with one of our scheduling attendants.

We also have access to American Sign Language interpreters for our hearing-impaired patients and clients. Please contact us ahead of your appointment if you would like us to arrange for this service.
