While a good deal of Headlands' campus and housing facilities are on ground floors and wheelchair accessible, not all aspects of Headlands' buildings, campus and surrounding park are fully accessible. There are no elevators in Headlands' buildings and there are unpaved trails and paths throughout the campus and park. Headlands can and has accommodated artist residents using wheelchairs in ground floor living spaces and with ground floor studios. Artist meals are shared in a ground floor space. Headlands is committed to being open to and accessible to all artists.
