Vistula University and the Vistula School of Hospitality (formerly the Warsaw School of Tourism and Hospitality Management) – Universities without barriers

Vistula University and the Vistula School of Hospitality are universities devoid of language, cultural or interpersonal barriers. We spare no effort to ensure that the atmosphere at our University should foster integration of students from different countries and of different cultural or religious background, regardless of their physical fitness.

Our modern campus has been fully adapted to the needs of persons with disabilities. Both the main entrance and passages to lecture halls have no thresholds, which allows students to move comfortably, among others on a wheelchair. The building is also equipped with lifts (lift card available in room 120) and toilets for persons with disabilities.

Applications for a disabled person’s assistant or other assistance for students with disabilities can be submitted to the Ombudsman for Persons with Disabilities (room 207).
