About Students for Barrier-Free Access (SBA)
Students for Barrier-Free Access (SBA) at the University of Toronto is a disabled and mad student-led non-profit that works from a Disability Justice
framework. SBA advocates for equity, access, and the removal of barriers to access in post-secondary institutions, at both the undergraduate and graduate level. SBA operates a drop-in centre with bookable a study/meeting room, an accessible computer lab, and a social space for students and community members.

The Association of Part-time Undergraduate Students at the University of Toronto (APUS)
The Association of Part-time Undergraduate Students at the University of Toronto (APUS) represents part-time students across all three campuses of the University of Toronto. APUS was founded in 1968 by part-time students who wanted to make part-time study an integral part of the University. We endeavor to ensure that the rights of all part-time students are respected, provide cost-saving services, programs and events, and represent the voices of part-time undergraduate students across the University and to all levels of government. We are fundamentally committed to the principle of access to education for all. We strive to ensure that the academic and social needs of part-time undergraduate students are met by building a more inclusive educational and campus life experience for all part-time students.
