Motor Skill (Gross Lower) : Arranging classes close together eliminates difficulty for students who use canes or crutches and exposes them to less danger of falling.
Fatigue (Physical) : Short travel distance between classes reduces physical fatigue for students who have difficulty walking.
Breathing Difficulty : Students may need to limit exposure to extreme weather conditions.
Pain Management : Short travel distances between classes allow students with pain that is exacerbated by walking long distances to limit pain and exposes them to less danger of falling.
Climate Sensitivity : Students who experience physiological reactions to extreme climate may be unable to travel long distances when the outside temperature is very hot or very cold.
Blindness : Students may benefit from short distances between classes since they may have difficulty navigating a busy campus.
