Mobility Issues or Wheelchair Use
Prior to your arrival on campus (if you have not already done so) we suggest that you contact the Office of Accessible Education. A representative will be able to work with you with accommodations and help you plan for ways to successfully navigate in a large university setting.
Universities present lifestyle challenges due to being located away from families and family medical teams (even if only a few miles). In addition, there are changes in geography and terrain. There may be additional challenges with managing your mobility and your busy schedule.
There are resources at Stanford available to assist you along this transition. As already mentioned the Office of Accessible Education (OAE) has a wealth of resources for you. Vaden Health Center is available to provide Primary Care Services. In addition, Vaden offers general nutrition and wellness counseling as well as Counseling and Psychologic Services (CAPS). The Continuity of Care Nurse at Vaden is available to assist you with managing your medical needs. You may contact her at 650.725.0984 if you have complex needs or if there are barriers to obtaining the care you need while on campus.
