Accommodations For Students With Disabilities
The University of Houston is committed to providing reasonable accommodations for eligible students who have temporary or permanent health impairments, learning disabilities, psychological disorders, and/or other disabilities.
Students who have disabilities are encouraged to register with the Justin Dart, Jr. Center for Students with DisABILITIES (CSD) as early as possible in their academic careers. Specific documentation from qualified health care providers is required. Documentation requirements may be obtained through CSD or by visiting their web page at www.uh.edu/csd. A link to the Faculty Affairs "Academic Accommodations for Students with Disabilities Policy and Procedures" is also available through the CSD web page.
Students who have disabilities that may require accommodations, including exam accommodations, interpreters, note-taking assistance, etc., should contact CSD and discuss the process of obtaining such accommodations. Accommodations are recommended on an individual basis through a team approach involving the student, CSD, the Academic Accommodations Evaluation Committee, and at times instructors, as appropriate.
The University of Houston strives to maintain an accessible campus via ramps, curb cuts, inner-campus accessible parking, Braille signs, TTY's, etc. Attendant Care Services are available through the Student Health Center at 713-748-8603 for students who have physical disabilities and require this type of assistance. Participating students reside at Cambridge Oaks Apartments.
Students who identify accessibility barriers should contact the Section 504/ADA Coordinator at the Office of Affirmative Action/EEO at 713-743-8835 and/or CSD.
