Student Disability Services

In partnership with ATS, Student Disability Services helps students navigate the necessary steps for documenting their disability and receiving appropriate accommodation for academic success. Their new home in Shriver Center provides space for training and information sessions on a variety of topics, giving students a comfortable place to relax and learn about new technology. Plans are also underway for a new adaptive technology lab, the "AccessMU Center," scheduled to open August 2017.

For questions about student accommodations, contact Director Andy Zeisler, via email or phone at 513-529-1541.
