This article discusses whether Decree 5626 (12/22/2005) referring to Brazilian Sign Language (Federal Law 10436 – 04/23/2002) and Accessibility Law 10098 – (12/19/2000) that requires Universities to be equipped to receive deaf students is being followed. The question is whether deaf inclusion in universities actually occurs. After a year working with teachers, deaf students and interpreters at a university, we have concludedthat the university is far from achieving real inclusion and that many more decisions must be taken and actions made in order to meet genuine inclusion. It concludes by confirming that the presence of the interpreter in the classroom is necessary, however, it is not sufficient for the Deaf to have their rights fully respected.
