Centre for Accessibility Services


Talk with an Advisor to register with the Centre for Accessibility Services or to gather information on the ways the CAS may be able to help you. To make an appointment, contact us through the website or call the Student Services front desk to make an appointment (604) 854-4528. Our advisors also hold drop-in appointments one afternoon a week where you can have a short ten minute meeting to ask any urgent questions or get pointers about what to bring for your upcoming appointment.

If it is your first time registering with CAS, please be sure to speak with an advisor at least four months in advance of attending UFV. This will enable us to review your documentation, create an individualized accommodation plan, contact your instructors, and put into place any technology needs you may have.

If you're not sure what documentation you need, if you have questions about disclosing your disability, or you're simply curious about how CAS can help you, we invite you to call or pay us a visit.

Drop-in hours

Advisors are available for general assistance on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays in our office at A1347.

Please note that drop-ins are only 15 minutes in length. If you have a question or concern that will take longer, please book an appointment.

For directions, please see the UFV Abbotsford campus map‌.
