The Rockefeller University is sensitive to those with limited mobility. Our facilities and grounds are equipped with wheelchair ramps, accessible bathrooms and designated parking spaces. All of our newer buildings and grounds have been designed with the needs of the physically disabled in mind.

Please note that the natural incline of the main drive into campus at East 66th Street exceeds accessible slope as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act. Those with mobility issues may need assistance.
