According to the Norwegian Anti-Discrimination and Accessibility Act , the University of Bergen is obligated to ensure universal design for and individual accommodation of students with disabilities. According to the statute: "Schools and educational institutions shall, within reason, individually accommodate teaching locations and the teaching in order to ensure that pupils and students with disabilities obtain equal training and educational opportunities. "

Each faculty has a contact person for students with disabilities who will assist in ensuring universal design at the department and faculty level. Every member of the teaching staff must also see to it that teaching is adapted for all students attending lectures.
