The United States Coast Guard Academy (USCGA) is open to the public and, as such, strives to provide an enjoyable experience to all visitors regardless of individual’s differing abilities.
Arrival and Designated Parking
Campus maps that identify accessible parking and other features are available as a download (above) or by request at the Front Gate or Admissions Office. Visitors whose vehicles display appropriate permits may park in posted accessible parking spaces.
Accessible entrances to those buildings that are open to the public display the international symbol of accessibility. Also note, though most of the campus is wheelchair accessible, there are some areas that are steeply graded.
There are many accessible restrooms in the public areas of campus. These locations are marked on the map and can be identified by the international symbol of accessibility.
Service animals are welcome in all public areas and must be leashed while on campus.
Requests for Assistance
Requests for sign language interpretation, auxiliary aids and/or services are welcome and will be considered on a case by case basis. Requests should be directed to the event sponsor at least 30 days in advance.
USCGA strives to abide by section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act and to support Level “A” W3C compliance. Comments or questions regarding web content or standards can be sent to Web Information Director Leann Strickland, (860) 444-8504.
Further Information and Feedback
USCGA is in the early stages of review of the accessibility of its buildings, programs and publications. We are committed to removing barriers that may be presented to visitors and prospective guests and aim to make those features of USCGA, which are of interest to the public, accessible to the widest possible audience. We welcome your comments and suggestions.
