Reporting problems: Barrier Report

The University of Montana is committed to equal access and the civil rights of people with disabilities. If you have encountered any physical, electronic, or programmatic barriers at UM, please report them so UM can remove the barriers as quickly as possible and maintain access for everyone.

Reports about barriers can be made by completing the Barrier Report Online form below. Please note the following before completing the form:

  • If you are experiencing an emergency, contact UM Police Department: (406) 243-6131.
  • If you are experiencing a specific, physical barrier, contact UM Facilities Services: (406) 243-6091.
  • If you need assistance with workplace accommodations, contact Human Resource Services: (406) 243-6766.

Barrier Report Submission & Response Process

The Barrier Report form you submit goes to the Electronic and Information Technology Accessibility Coordinator, the Chair of the Americans with Disabilities Act/504 Team, and the Director of the Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action. You can submit the form anonymously. We will follow up as timely as possible as the information provided permits.
