Wheelchair accessible pick-up and drop-off can be found at 1985 Lower Mall. X̱wi7x̱wa can be accessed through the pathways alongside or through the Longhouse. Google Maps is unreliable for the best point of entry for those who have difficulty with stairs. All parkades and many surface lots have designated spaces for people with mobility issues. Please note that to use disabled parking you require a SPARC parking permit.

Public transit

The Bus loops are about a 10 minute walk from X̱wi7x̱wa Library. Either use the stairs to X̱wi7x̱wa or use the ramp to the left of the library and circle back along the sidewalk between The Longhouse and the library, as pictured.
