dc.description.abstractIn this study, a survey of students with disabilities at Kenyatta University was carried out. A total of thirty (30) out of 42 students registered with the Dean of Students as having a physical or visual disability responded to the questionnaire. The results indicated that most of the students were physically inactive. They rarely engaged in any physical activity even though they were aware that exercises were important to them. They wished they could participate in recreational activities to improve their fitness levels and for pleasure. They were not aware of sports opportunities available to them at campus. They perceived a number offactors as barriers to their participation in physical activities. These include inaccessible facilities lack of encouragement, lack of information and inadequate equipment and facilities, not adapted to suit their abilities. Such barriers as physical discomfort or medical problems were not perceived as limitations.en_US
