Wheelchair bound

Hello, I'm in a wheelchair and I don't know for how much longer. I am trying to go back to college to finish my degree. The problem I have is that I am wheelchair bound with one hand somewhat paralyzed. With this I am unable to get around my school's campus and my university does not have help for mobility of a person in a wheelchair. So idk how I can get around from classroom to classroom. All I have heard of is an electric wheelchair. Any other ideas?

Can you hire a college student to help get you around?

Do they have a disability club with students who volunteer to help the disabled to get around? Do they have paid assistants to help those who are wheelchair bound to get around?

Why not find a better campus or rent an electric wheelchair?
