Assistive Listening Devices
Public address systems in large lecture halls emit infrared signals that can be picked up and amplified by receiver headsets. Contact Accessibility Resources to learn which lecture halls are equipped with the transmitters and to borrow receivers. Receivers can be borrowed for a day or for the duration of the semester by qualified individuals.
Accessibility Resources also has two Phonak Assistive Listening Device kits to lend to qualified students on a semester long basis. These kits work best for smaller classrooms. The receivers can be used with headphones, or compatible hearing aids. However, students are responsible for purchasing their own hearing aids and boots/shoes for use with the Phonak receivers. Please contact the Auxiliary Aids and Services Coordinator, Holly Johnson, for more information at 645-2608.
