Accessible facilities for people with disabilities
ITU has a Disabled Student Unit to make disabled students' educational life easier in terms of accessing faculty buildings and mentoring. An accessibility study report was prepared to analyze which measures could be implemented on the campus and buildings
to make disabled individuals' campus life easier. According to the conducted studies, tactile paving was laid on the main access routes. For disabled individuals, a voice guideline was implemented for some of the faculty buildings. The system helps
disabled individuals to find their way into the buildings. An app was developed for this purpose. ITU has also a Disabled Student Unit and it organizes some periodical activities for disabled students. The public link of ITU is given as Evidence 1.
