Student Access

The Disability Resource Center (DRC) serves degree-seeking and non-degree seeking undergraduate, graduate, and professional students across University programs and disciplines. The DRC is a resource for exploring reasonable accommodations in an effort to reduce disability-related barriers and provide equitable access while maintaining essential requirements and learning objectives within courses/programs. The DRC works with students who have various disabilities and health conditions, including less-apparent disabilities like chronic health and mental health.

Students who have not previously worked with the DRC:

Students who have not previously worked with the DRC can make an appointment by completing the student intake form and following the directions in the confirmation email. To connect with an access consultant via drop-in, students can email drc@umn.edu.

Students who are already registered with our office:

You have a designated access consultant who serves as your primary contact in the DRC. This is the person whose signature and contact information is at the bottom of your accommodation letter. You can reach out to your access consultant by email or by phone. If you have questions about who your assigned access consultant is, email drc@umn.edu and they can support you in connecting with your access consultant, or visit OneDRC.

Instructors/faculty or staff who have questions:

Contact the access consultant named on the student’s letter or contact drop-in.  More resources can be found on our faculty/instructor page.

Drop-in Hours

Drop-in meetings and phone calls are brief, about 10-15 minutes, and are intended to provide general information, resources, and/or next steps to address urgent concerns.  

See drop-in schedule on the right.

To reach the access consultant on drop-in, email drc@umn.edu and our admin support team will support you in connecting with the next available access consultant during our drop-in hours.
