Disability Resources and Services

Students studying

Disability is an aspect of diversity. Disability Resources and Services (DRS) is the designated department by the University to determine reasonable accommodations and services. At the University of Pittsburgh, we are committed to promoting equal access and inclusive experiences to students, faculty, and staff with disabilities.

Individuals with disabilities are integrated as completely as possible into the University environment. DRS leads collaborations with the University community to ensure access through services and accommodations. Through an interactive process, we work with each individual to provide access to University classes, programs, activities, and employment. Our office is available as a resource; please contact us to discuss your individual needs.
