Accessibility

For details about accessibility, and to ensure that we can provide assistance, please contact us at info@1440.org or by calling 844-544-1440. All buildings are ADA accessible, and we have a variety of accessible housing types. The campus is on hilly terrain, and there is not a continuous accessible pathway throughout the campus. Each building has an accessible path into it and is connected to a public way. To ensure access between buildings that do not have an accessible path between them, 1440 Multiversity provides an ADA accessible shuttle. This shuttle is provided to transport guests from parking areas to accessible pathways leading to campus buildings and to transport guests between accessible pathways so that they can enter each building. We request that you contact us within two weeks of your program so that we can coordinate your transportation on campus.

If you require sign language interpretation for your program, please contact us a minimum of two weeks prior to your program so that we can make arrangements for you. If you plan to bring a service animal, please contact us prior to your stay. In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, service animals are defined as dogs that are individually trained to do work or perform tasks for people with disabilities. Examples of such work or tasks include guiding people who are blind, alerting people who are deaf, pulling a wheelchair, alerting and protecting a person who is having a seizure, reminding a person with mental illness to take prescribed medications, calming a person with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) during an anxiety attack, or performing other duties. Service animals are working animals, not pets. The work or task that a dog has been trained to provide must be directly related to the person’s disability. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA.
