Another excellent option that works now even on an inexpensive 3-D printer, see touchmapper.org

Hello, Buenos dias,
I do not have any 3D tactile map.
Do you have access to a 3D printer at your university ? With 3D plans from a third person, you could print it yourself ?
Maybe you could investigate that domain :
Though personally, I think the future technology will not be 3D maps, but 3D soft-printer or touch screen, some device that will output a 3D object on a tactile screen.
(in terms of mobility, it will be easier to move in the streets with a small pocket device rather than with a 1 square meter solid map...)
I am not active in that domain, so I can not help you anymore.
By the way, you did not mention whether you are or not visually impaired
or blind ?
(you need not reply that question - it was just to be sure that you will
be able to easily read the two articles I have cited...)
You also did not mention if you are studying a bachelor or a Master degree.
