- Office of Accessibility Resources & Service
The priority of the Office of Accessibility Resources & Service is to identify and eliminate barriers through:
- Consultation with faculty, staff and students to support the University’s commitment to an accessible environment.
- The provision of reasonable accommodations that address individual needs while at the same time maintaining the integrity of programs and services in the University.
Services that address barriers limiting a student’s ability to independently meet the numerous demands of university life are available to all students (undergraduate, graduate/professional, full and part-time).
To effectively address individual needs, documentation describing current functional abilities is required. The Department is also prepared to assist individuals with temporary injuries.
The office is located on the second floor, Suite 2126, of the Student Academic Services Building, 450 Ridge Road, and is open 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. The staff can be contacted by telephone (919)962-8300 (V/T), by electronic mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or on the web at (http://accessibility.unc.edu/).
