About the Blundon Centre

The Glenn Roy Blundon Centre (Student Life) provides and co-ordinates programs and services that enable students with disabilities to maximize their educational potential and to increase awareness of inclusive values among all members of the university community.

Established in February 1992, the Centre is dedicated to the memory of Glenn Roy Blundon, a former Memorial student and resident of Bay de Verde, Newfoundland. Glenn is remembered for his leadership and his commitment to equality and accessibility issues.

The Blundon Centre assists students by facilitating access to information, services, and campus facilities in accordance with the university's Policy on Accommodations for Students with Disabilities. The Centre carries out its mission in collaboration with faculty, staff, and students at Memorial University and off-campus agencies, including disability community organizations.

The Centre serves prospective and current students on the university's St. John's campus whose disabilities involve conditions affecting mobility, vision, hearing, learning (disabilities), chronic illnesses, or mental health. Support is also provided to students with documented temporary illnesses and injuries.

Once students register at the Blundon Centre, they can log on to our Online Student Services page (using their my.mun.ca login) to select academic accommodations and schedule tests and exams.
