Resource Office on Disabilities

The Resource Office on Disabilities coordinates accommodations and services for students with disabilities and provides general information about campus-wide access for persons with disabilities. Services include, but are not limited to, classroom and special testing accommodations, visual materials in alternative formats, and loans of special equipment. For students with a disability, contacting the Resource Office on Disabilities is a required first step in the process of obtaining disability-related accommodations. Contacting the office during the summer months is highly encouraged if students live within a day’s travel or will be on campus early. Registration with the office is confidential.

Early planning is critical to successful accommodations. New students who need housing accommodations should complete the standard online housing form for incoming first-year students and send or fax supporting medical documentation to the Resource Office on Disabilities by Friday, May 4, 2018. The documentation should explain why and what housing arrangements need to be considered. Students requesting accommodations related to academic disabilities should contact the office by June 15, 2018. Every semester, students are required to submit an electronic Course Accommodation Form within ten days after registering for classes. At any time during a semester, students with a newly diagnosed disability or recently sustained injury requiring accommodations should contact Sarah Chang, Associate Director.

The Resource Office on Disabilities is located at 35 Broadway (rear entrance), Room 222. The office is open Monday through Friday from 8.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. An appointment is advised.
