_Disability and chronic illness

For students with disabilities or chronic illnesses

Services for students with disabilities and chronic illnesses are for persons with physical disabilities (e.g., sensory and mobility disabilities), mental disabilities (e.g., autism, depression, or anxiety disorder), partial functional disabilities (e.g., dyslexia, dyscalculia, ADHD), and chronic illnesses (e.g., diabetes, rheumatism, multiple sclerosis).

Students with disabilities or chronic illnesses have a right to access arrangements. Access Arrangements means the proportionate adjustment of study and examination conditions that are necessary to compensate for disadvantages caused by a disability or chronic illness.

In previous and new construction projects, a priority has been given to the accessibility of buildings and lecture halls. For example, 154 of the 185 lecture halls at the University of Bern are already wheelchair accessible. In addition, some rooms are equipped with induction systems for people with hearing disabilities. In the main building, this is the auditorium (210), the Audimax (110), and lecture halls 201 and 220. In the UniS, there is an induction system in lecture hall A003.
