Adaptive Technology

The University of Northern Colorado offers Adaptive Technology use and training for students registered with Disability Resource Center. DRC also assists students who receive alternative text such as audio format, Braille and/or enlarged print.

There is an adaptive technology room available on the main floor of Michener Library in room 117L. This room is open the same hours as the library and can be accessed by checking out the key at the Circulation Desk. For more information about library services for individuals with disabilities, please visit the Michener Library's website.

If you have any questions about Adaptive Technology at UNC please email the Adaptive Technology Coordinator at DRCTechnology@unco.edu.
