Welcome to Disability Services at the University of Massachusetts Amherst!

Our staff are committed to providing students with disabilities the finest educational opportunities and the most appropriate accommodations available. I am pleased to report we have added additional staff for Fall 2023!

In addition to offering a number of services specific to an individual's academic or career success, Disability Services also educates the campus about the experience of disability and provides expertise and guidance on increasing access to all university programs and services.

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

Welcome to UMass!
