Physical Access

SFU is committed to providing an accessible environment to all who visit, work and study on campus. Most SFU buildings are accessible by wheelchair ramps, have disabled parking and are equipped with ADA-compliant restrooms. Many campus buildings are also equipped with power-assisted doors, and prospective students and their families may arrange for an access tour at any SFU campus. Please contact us for any questions.


The SFU Physical Access Guide was created to enhance campus access and to make navigation easier for individuals with mobility difficulties. This resource helps provide a greater awareness regarding accessibility to campus facilities in all buildings, floors and areas on Simon Fraser campuses. The information is intended to:

  • Help persons with disabilities determine whether rooms are accessible
  • Provide warning about areas of possible difficulty
  • Give specific details on the location of rooms, accessible washrooms, elevators, telephones and automatic doors
