Director's Welcome

We welcome you to Disability Services at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Our staff is committed to providing members of the University community with the finest educational opportunities and the most appropriate accommodations available for people with disabilities.

If you are a student with a disability, we encourage you to register for services from our office. This process begins by completing an intake form and submitting diagnostic documentation of your disability. In addition to offering a number of services specific to an individual's academic or occupational success, Disability Services also educates the campus about people with disabilities and their needs.

We encourage you to take advantage of the opportunities that Disability Services is available to provide. We look forward to meeting with you.
