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

World Aids Day at UNH Red Ribbon logo December 1

World AIDS Day at UNH
December 1, 2016

All week you'll notice red around campus in honor of World AIDS Day. You may pick-up a red ribbon at Health Services or after viewing the AIDS Memorial Quilt in the MUB. 

The Red Ribbon was created in 1991 by a group of artists in the Visual AIDS Artists Caucus. The color red was chosen for its “connection to blood and the idea of passion—not only anger, but love...” Today, the Red Ribbon is internationally recognized as the symbol of AIDS Awareness. The Red Ribbon was never copyrighted so that it would remain a consciousness-raising symbol, not as a commercial or trademark tool. The Red Ribbon has led the way for other awareness ribbon causes.
