Disability Resources

Students with disabilities enrolled in the College are assigned an individual access coordinator to facilitate services during their time at the University of Rochester. We encourage the development of our students’ self-advocacy and compensatory strategies, offering a supportive relationship in which students gain confidence to discover their strengths and explore their interests. Your access coordinator is your partner for arranging reasonable accommodations with instructors.

These additional pages lead to information and resources to help students and families prepare for transition to the college learning environment.

We are happy to speak with students or parents by email, phone or appointment, and encourage that this contact be made well in advance so services are in place at the start of the semester.
