Eligibility for the Loop
All riders must demonstrate a disability-related need to receive approval to use the Loop. Campus Access Services receives requests for Loop access, verifies the requestor’s disability needs based on available documentation, and approves requests as appropriate.
Students with active cases with the DSP will have Loop access approved based on their currently documented disability status, in consultation with their Disability Specialist. Additional information about DSP’s processes can be found here.
Non-DSP students must provide documentation of their disability need(s) including their expected recovery period. Students will receive access to the Loop for one (1) semester or through their expected recovery from the injury/condition for which they seek Loop access, whichever is shortest. Access to the Loop can be extended beyond the initial request in consultation with Campus Access Services.
Staff, Faculty, and visiting researchers/scholars are currently not required to provide disability documentation, however they must certify their need and describe the length of their requested Loop access in detail.
Guests and visitors to campus should contact their sponsoring department or the department sponsoring the program or event they are visiting to receive campus mobility support. Alternatively, they may contact Campus Access Services (firstname.lastname@example.org or (510) 643-6456) for assistance.
