Lara Wong is a first-year student at Ryerson. She relies on a walker to get around campus. She lives in a Pitman Hall room renovated for her needs, including a roll-in shower.

Wong has carefully planned her route to classes based on accessibility and spent much of her first week on campus mapping it out with her support worker.

Ryerson’s Health and Wellness Centre has been a vital resource for students battling mental health issues, but its lack of diversity has many students of colour feeling left behind.
