Accessible Education Services (formerly Office for Students with Disabilities) serves over 200 students with disabilities each semester through accommodations such as extended time on exams, housing accommodations, assistive technology and other individually-tailored accommodations, according to student need. The types of disabilities represented among our student population include learning disabilities, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, psychiatric disabilities, vision and hearing impairments, and chronic health and mobility impairments.
We think that you will find that in addition to enjoying a beautiful setting in which to live and to study, the University of Portland community is welcoming, vibrant, and supportive, while maintaining a high standard within its programs.
We encourage you to browse our web pages here to obtain further information about our services. Students with Disabilities and students who believe they may have a disability should contact this office as early as possible in order to request a reasonable accommodation for a disability. Documentation of the disability is required, and providing such documentation is the student's responsibility. If you have questions or would like to talk further about your individual needs after looking through our web pages, please feel free to call us or send an email.
