Promotion of a barrier-free campus

Creation and publication of barrier-free maps

The staff and peer tutors of the DAC Center (Accessibility) are checking and organizing the physical barriers in classrooms, multipurpose restrooms, elevators, and entrances and exits, mainly in the Tsukuba campus buildings, to create a barrier-free map. This will allow us to check in advance the location of classrooms and usable restrooms, the condition of physical barriers, etc.

Barrier-free renovation and repair of campus facilities

The University provides consultation and advice on barrier-free renovation and repair of campus facilities and equipment, in order to improve campus amenities. We will promote the creation of a campus that is accessible to students who use wheelchairs or are visually impaired, by renovating doors and repairing Braille blocks in sequence.
