Access Center

About Us

The WSU Access Center serves the WSU community as part of the Division of Student Affairs. We provide accommodations and services to incoming and current WSU students registered with the campuses of Pullman, Global, Everett, Puyallup and Bremerton. In collaboration with our partners in the Community, Equity, and Inclusive Excellence (CEIE) area of Student Affairs, we work to promote disability and intersectionality awareness through system-wide culture and climate efforts.

Mission Statement

The Access Center supports social justice for students with disabilities and chronic medical conditions by:

  • Removing barriers to the living and learning environment through the interactive accommodation process
  • Collaborating with campus partners to identify and remove systemic barriers, attitudinal barriers and social exclusions in the learning and living environment at WSU
  • Advocating for accessible and equitable learning and living environments for all students
  • Enhancing equity and inclusion through Universal Design and Universal Design for Learning principles
  • Collaborating with the Community, Equity and Social Justice pillar of Student Affairs to bring issues of disability to the campus community through system-wide awareness programming


The Access Center envisions: 

  • A WSU academic experience that is universally accessible for all students
  • A WSU community and culture that embraces and celebrates disability as an aspect of diversity
  • A WSU system that continually strives to evolve and adapt its policies and practices to ensure that all students have an opportunity to thrive academically, socially, and culturally
