Procedure information

Everyone has the right to request the provision of digital accessibility for a website, mobile application, or any of their elements.

If the requesting person indicates the need for information in an alternative form, they should also specify the preferred format. The public entity is obliged to fulfill the request promptly and no later than within 7 days. If meeting this deadline is not possible, the public entity must promptly inform when the request will be fulfilled, with the deadline not exceeding 2 months. If ensuring accessibility is not feasible, the public entity may propose an alternative means of accessing the information.

After exhausting all claim possibilities, the complaint can also be submitted to the Ombudsman.

Building area

The area around the building is accessible for individuals with disabilities. The sidewalks are even, without gaps between finishing elements. There are no obstacles at the entrance to the building that would impede movement. There are no designated parking spaces for individuals with disabilities directly at the building. However, such parking spaces are located approximately 100 meters away from the building.

Building entrance

The main entrance to the building is located at Professor Kazimierz Idaszewski Square. It is adapted for individuals with disabilities and features a ramp. The entrance doors swing open and are manually operated. Due to the weight of the doors, increased force is required to operate them.


The building has 5 floors, and access for individuals with physical disabilities is provided to all floors. In the lobby, there is a stair lift allowing access to the higher ground floor. Additionally, a lift located near room 019 facilitates movement between the floors. Operation of both devices requires notifying the porter (devices are activated using a key). The WCSS headquarters is on the third floor of the building. Access to it is restricted by an access code/intercom. External guests are invited inside by a secretary. There are no toilets adapted for individuals with mobility disabilities in the building. The nearest accessible restroom is located on the ground floor of building D-21 (the second WCSS headquarters, connected to building D-2, fully adapted for individuals with disabilities). The restroom is situated near the cloakroom, close to the entrance of the building.

Additional information

Assistance dogs and guide dogs are allowed entry into the building and all its premises. There are no induction loops in the building. There are no sound markers in the building. Should the assistance of a sign language interpreter be required, please contact the Department of Accessibility and Support for People with Disabilities at least 48 hours before the planned visit (email: pomoc.n@pwr.edu.pl).
