Reporting Problems

If you encounter a physical, electronic, or programmatic barrier on the UM campus, such as an inoperative elevator or wheelchair lift, an inaccessible website, a blocked access ramp, or a refusal to make a reasonable accommodation, please file a barrier report to remove those barriers as quickly as possible and maintain access for everyone.
