Attendant Care Services

The University of Houston operates one of a few personal care assistance programs nationwide at an institution of higher learning that is specifically structured to help physically-challenged students achieve their dream of a college education. The Attendant Care Services (ACS) assist physically-challenged students with the activities of daily living so they can live on campus independently while working toward their academic goal.
