Regional Campus Students

Overview

The Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD) at the University of Connecticut is committed to providing reasonable and appropriate accommodations and services to all students with permanent or temporary disabilities. Our goal is to ensure a comprehensively accessible University experience where individuals with disabilities have the same access to programs, opportunities and activities as all others. Accommodations and services are available to students attending Storrs and all of the regional campuses including Avery Point, Greater Hartford, Stamford, Torrington, Waterbury and the School of Social Work. Students at the School of Law and School of Medicine should refer to those specific websites for information regarding requesting accommodations.

How do I request accommodations at a regional campus?

Requests for accommodations at any of the regional campuses are reviewed by the CSD in Storrs. In collaboration with the disability contact person at each regional campus, the CSD engages in an interactive process with each student and reviews requests for accommodations on an individualized, case-by-case basis. Depending on the nature and functional limitations of a student’s documented disability, he/she may be eligible for reasonable and appropriate accommodations. To request accommodations at a regional campus, please refer to the following procedure:

Step 1: Register online with the CSD via MyAccess. NetID and password are required for registration. Register With MyAccess. If you prefer to register using a paper form, please click here to view and download a Student Information Form.

Step 2: Students must provide appropriate documentation which establishes the need for an accommodation and relates the current impact of the condition to the requested accommodations. Guidelines for documentation are available at http://csd.uconn.edu/documentation-guidelines/.

  • Students are advised to share the documentation guidelines with the appropriate treatment provider who can best describe the nature of the condition for which an accommodation is being requested.

Step 3: Once appropriate documentation is received, the regional campus disability contact will forward the information to the CSD in Storrs where it will be reviewed. Students will receive an e-mail notification from the CSD regarding the outcome of the request. This will include information regarding how accommodations will be implemented at the specific regional campus.
