Accessibility in Maxwell

Accessibility in the Global Collaboratory (Eggers Hall 060) was certainly a consideration during the renovation a few years ago.

Features of the Global Collaboratory  Include:

Global Collaboratory

 

  • Ramp from the hallway down to the presentation area
  • Widened row of desks at the hallway level for wheelchair access
  • Wireless microphones for in-room voice amplification
  • Wireless assisted listening earbud devices
  • Wireless keyboard and mouse for computer access
  • Adjustable height teaching station
  • Lowered touch-panel system for control of room devices

While many of these are inherent to the room, some require a planning prior to the room use and setup assistance just before the event.
