  • exam accommodations such as extra time, quiet environment or readers/scribes
  • other services such as note takers, taping lectures and tutors
  • accessibility audits if you use mobility supports

Academic accommodations

Accommodations are determined based on individual situations. Because how we help is based on your needs, you need to speak with an accessibility advisor.

Adaptive & assistive technology

Accessibility Services can connect you with adaptive/assistive technology using one of our adaptive/assistive technology labs, or a workstation in the Commons.

Enhanced services

The Commons can also assist you with developing learning strategies and using technological supports.

Understanding disabilities

The term "disability" covers a wide range of physical limitations, illnesses and specific learning disabilities. Some disabilities are visible, some are not.
