The James Edward Knox Center Adaptive Technology Computer Site (ATCS), located on Central Campus in Room 2064 of the Shapiro Undergraduate Library, is operated by the Information Technology Services (ITS). It offers quiet space as well as equipment and software tools to meet the accessibility needs of UM students, faculty, and staff. Technology available only at the Knox Center includes voice dictation software, a closed circuit television (CCTV), and a Braille printer. The Knox Center also has other assistive technology supported throughout the campus, including adjustable tables. Finally, the Center has lockers that students are welcome to use with their own locks.

Students who are registered with the SSD office will be able to access the Knox Center by presenting their MCard in front of a card reader and then activating a touch-free sensor.

The Knox Center is staffed by Jane Vincent and Brandon Werner. Contact them at or (734) 936-3794.
