Getting around campus as a first-year is difficult for a lot of students, but it can be especially difficult for students who have mobility impairments. Here is a breakdown of some of the services UNC provides and some tips on how to get around campus.
Point 2 Point (P2P): This is one of the biggest resources the University offers to students with mobility or physical disabilities. The P2P Accessibility Shuttle is an on-demand van that will pick you up 24 hours during the weekdays and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday for free.
This service includes some off campus locations, but will pick you up from all on campus locations. Every van is equipped with a wheelchair lift. The number to schedule a ride is 919-962-7867.
Parking: If you are in need of parking accommodations due to mobility limitations, you can apply to receive those services. The application is here, and requires the healthcare information portion to be sent by a licensed physician. These accommodations can include access to visitor's disability parking spaces, the campus transportation services mentioned above or even assistance with public transportation such as Chapel Hill Transit or GoTriangle.
Maps: Here is the link to a website with some helpful maps. This first one to look at is the Accessibility Map. It shows where all the ramps, elevators, power doors and non-power doors are on campus. The second one is the Disability Parking Map. It shows you where disability parking is available, both for visitors and permanent permit holders.
