Welcome to Disability Services for Students!

The University of New Hampshire and Disability Services for Students (DSS) take great pride in promoting the development of students and the personal independence necessary to succeed academically and beyond. We seek to create a welcoming, universally accessible environment where all students are able to participate in the myriad aspects of the UNH experience.

Students have the right (and responsibility) to self-disclose and make use of the services available. To begin this process, students are encouraged to contact DSS to discuss what services, resources, and accommodations exist. The choice – to use or not – is yours. Make an informed choice.

We invite you to connect with us to learn about the options available. If at any time you cannot access forms or pages on this site, and need to request an accessible format, please email disability.office@unh.edu; we will provide you with the accessible format. Click on the icons below to get started!

Upcoming Events

Fresh Check Day Checkin' in with college students


Drug Take-Back Day, hosted by UNH Health Services and the UNH Police, is this Saturday, October 22!

Free, confidential, and no questions asked. 

Drug Take-Back Day is a national program, offered once a semester in April and October, in coordination with UNH Health Services, UNH Police Department and the DEA. This event offers individuals a safe, free and confidential way to dispose of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs.

Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including the home medicine cabinet. By eliminating these unused medications, we can reduce misuse, abuse and accidental poisoning. But, it’s important to dispose of medications the right way. Do not flush medications down the toilet where they can contaminate groundwater and waterways. The easiest, safest way to dispose of medications is during Drug Take-Back Day.
