It is the policy of Bridgewater State College to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and other applicable laws prohibiting discrimination on the basis of disability. The college is committed to providing equal and integrated access for individuals with disabilities to all the academic, social, cultural and recreational programs it offers.
Although the achievement of architectural and physical access is a work-in-progress, the college has accessible travel ways throughout most of the campus and offers accessible campus bus service. Most buildings are accessible with the use of ramps, lifts and elevators: Pope and Scott Halls are accessible on the main floor and elevators or lifts are available in Boyden Hall, Harrington Hall, the Rondileau Campus Center, the Maxwell Library, the Conant Science Building, Kelly Gymnasium, the Moakley Center, the Tinsley Center, East Campus Commons, East Hall, Hart Hall, Miles and DiNardo Halls, Woodward Hall and Shea and Durgin Halls. Each campus parking lot has accessible parking.
The college continually works to improve campus accessibility. It has recently begun to undertake a number of construction projects and renovations that will affect the campus. These current and future projects, as well as any periodic work by the Town of Bridgewater, may temporarily impact or disrupt accessible travel routes, building accessibility and/or parking. In an effort to provide the community with as much information as possible regarding such disruptions, the college will promptly issue a campus-wide email to all students, faculty and staff concerning the disruptions and provide information regarding alternative modes of access.
While most of the college’s classrooms are physically accessible, students with disabilities are encouraged to plan their schedules to permit adequate travel time between classes. If a class is scheduled in the Rondileau Campus Center RCC015, RCC026B and RCC026C, or in rooms other than 004 or 013 in Hunt Hall, students should determine if there is another section in an accessible room. After considering all alternatives, students should contact the Disability Resources Office in writing to arrange to move a class to an accessible location. The office is located in the Academic Achievement Center on the ground floor of the Maxwell Library, 508.531.1214.
The Office of Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity is the designated office
to provide information and coordinate all other services regarding physical
access to the campus. Students, faculty, staff and guests with concerns
or questions regarding campus accessibility may contact Dr. Alan V. Comedy,
Section 504/ADA Coordinator,
Office of Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity, Boyden Hall, Room 206, 131 Summer Street, Bridgewater, MA 02325, 508.531.1241, Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
