To be UD advisors

Nagoya University has eliminated barriers and promoted universal design in campus by issuing Nagoya University Campus Sign Manual 2012 and Nagoya University Campus Universal Design Guideline 2015. Nagoya University Campus Master Plan 2016 also declares to promote universal design. This effort receives high praise internally and externally.


In addition, in accordance with the enforcement of the "Disability Discrimination Elimination Act" in 2016, it is further required to arrange and improve campus facilities and educational environment. Under this circumstances the importance of opinions on universal design by disabled members of Nagoya University has been increased. Therefore, Office for Students with Disabilities has called for volunteers from students with disabilities. They have contributed to eliminate barriers and promote universal design as “universal design advisor”. Through these efforts we not only improve university system and facilities but also strive to expand the influence of students with disabilities over university.


The student with a disability who works as universal design advisor should resister at Office for Students with Disabilities. Universal design advisors will actively find barriers and make advice on accessibility. In addition, by request from Facilities Control Department, Campus Planning & Environment Management Office or related departments, they will make advice on training or awareness campaign. In some cases, universal design advisors, the staff in the Office for Students with Disabilities, faculties and staffs in Facilities Control Department, Campus Planning & Environment Management Office or related departments will hold a discussion for the best choice. Students Counseling Center issues “Certificate of Activities Universal Design Advisor in Nagoya University,” which advisors can make use of in job-hunting activities, etc.
