Disability Resource Center

Each year, more than 2,400 University students register with the Disability Resource Center (DRC) to document mental health, attentional, learning, physical, or sensory conditions that may affect participation in academic or social activities or physical access. If your student has a similar condition, please consider recommending an initial confidential meeting with an Access Consultant.

There are benefits to early contact and registration with DRC, even if students have not decided to use accommodations. Meeting with a consultant will assist students to be proactive about accessing the learning environment by preparing them to negotiate potential barriers and develop resources and strategies. Students’ academic demands will vary each semester, and their condition-related needs may change over time. Access Consultants will encourage students to have regular contact with the DRC office to continue to assess, identify, and address potential obstacles before they become problematic.

The Student Services staff in DRC are here to ensure that students can access all that the University has to offer—in class, at work, or in the wide range of social and cultural experiences available at the University. To schedule an appointment, students should call 612-626-1333.
