Event Access

The Wheelchair Tennis Team at the University of Virginia brings collegiate adaptive sports to Virginia for the first time ever. UVA has grown into one of the largest collegiate wheelchair tennis programs in the country boasting four student-athletes and two coaches. Now, the team is challenging for a national title in Orlando, Florida every year – which if won – would be the first adaptive championship in UVA’s history.

Report A Barrier (RAB) is an online tool allowing students, faculty, staff, and guests of the University to report barriers to access encountered while navigating the Grounds and its facilities, attending a UVA sponsored event, in the academic setting, or when accessing our online environment. The RAB Review Team is the group of individuals who respond to the barriers identified through this tool. Membership includes representatives from the Office of Equal Opportunity and Civil Rights, the Office of the Executive Vice President & Provost, Facilities Management, Parking & Transportation, Information Technology Services, Athletics, Intramural and Recreational Sports, and the Student Disability Access Center.
