Accessibility
The PRC is committed to making both its facility and programs accessible to visitors with disabilities. We are happy to create guided tours tailored to your needs or the needs of your group if given at least two weeks notice.

The PRC Gallery and library at 832 Commonwealth Avenue is physically accessible with a ramp entrance to the front door. Please ring the doorbell for assistance as we do not have a power-assisted door. Exhibition wall text is available in large font upon request (please call a few days before your visit). Unfortunately, the PRC is not able to provide audio tours or assistive listening devices at this time.

Lectures and workshops are held at various locations on the BU Campus, all of which are accessible.
