Disability Accommodations

Although we continually strive to make the campus accessible to all, the Unity grounds are expansive, building signage and elevators may not be enhanced for those with visual impairment, and not all of the wheelchair accessible routes/entrances are clearly marked. We do not have sign language interpreters on site nor designated staff who can provide personal care assistance while you are here. If you need accommodations for a retreat or stay with us, we will make every effort to accommodate your needs, including providing contact information for local resources. Please allow us to make plans with you and answer questions before your visit by contacting Customer Care (see above). Service dogs are welcome anywhere on campus. Handicap accessible rooms are available at the conference center upon request and subject to availability.
