The Office of Disability Resources works to ensure that people with all kinds of disabilities have equal access and equal opportunity to fully participate in the University experience. We envision a Collegiate environment committed to accessible and inclusive practices, where disability is a valued component of campus diversity.
Disability Resources offers academic adjustments and assists students requiring residential accommodations. Once students have selected the University of Rochester and have enrolled, they can register with our office.
