Reserved Seating

You may require a specific seating location in the classroom or a laboratory as an accommodation for you disability. Reserved seating may include seating in or near the front, side, or back of the classroom or laboratory depending on the nature of your disability. Specific examples include, but are not limited to:

  • You need to sit in or near the front of the classroom in order to have an unobstructed view of the instructor as well as a sign language interpreter
  • You may need to sit in or near the front of the classroom to be able to see the board or screen close-up
  • You may need to sit in the back of the classroom for easy access to the door should you need to step out to alleviate your disability symptoms
  • You may need to have close access to the front of the classroom for audio recording purposes

To ensure that the seat is reserved for your use, the DPRC may post “reserved seat” signs or provide them for you to post yourself. Reserved seating may be requested by completing a furniture request form. Completing this form automatically relays your request to the DPRC in the form of an email. You may also complete a paper copy of the request form while visiting the DPRC.
