Saint Mary's University provides accommodations to students with disabilities through the Fred Smithers Centre. There are a variety of services available to help students achieve their academic and career goals. 

For returning students who have already registered with the Fred Smithers Centre and would like to have their accommodations re-activated for the upcoming semester, contact  

We require an application form form and documentation to support accommodation. When both items are received, you will be contacted by email to schedule an Intake Meeting with one of our Accessibility Advisors.  

We will be booking intake meetings for new applicants who start classes in the Fall of 2022 during the month of May.  This gives students the opportunity to register for courses so we have a better understanding of what accommodations will be required.  

Registration begins on May 10th at 5:00pm AST for all new undergraduate students.
