Handicapped accessibility sign. Handicapped Accessibility

The NIMBioS building is fully handicapped accessible: there are several parking spaces designated for handicap parking near the NIMBioS entrances and a ramp provides wheelchair access to the building. All public spaces in the building, including restrooms, are accessible to wheelchairs as well.


Although children are always welcome at NIMBioS for a brief tour or supervised visit and introduction to the research that is carried out, we are not set up to safely accommodate young children. Visitors are expected to arrange for the care of their dependents. Under limited circumstances in which a child must accompany a visitor, NIMBioS may be able to support part of the travel expenses for a necessary caregiver. Prior arrangements with the NIMBioS Deputy Director are required in these situations. Click here for information about childcare possibilities.
