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 student self-reliance and the personal independence necessary to succeed in a university climate. We seek to create a comprehensively accessible environment where students are viewed on a basis of ability, not disability.
The University of New Hampshire believes that students have the right and also the responsibility to determine whether or not to use support services. In keeping with this objective, students are expected and encouraged to utilize the resources of Disability Services for Students to the degree they determine necessary.
We invite you to connect with us to learn first-hand about the variety of options available to students with disabilities. If at any time you cannot access forms or pages on this site, and need to request an accessible format, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, we will provide you with the accessible format.
2015 DSS Orientation Packet!
DSS takes great strides to maintain a paperless and environmentally friendly office environment. For 2015 UNH First Year June Orientation, DSS is pleased to present our accessible and electronic Disability Services for Students Orientation Packet. Students and families can learn more about the DSS office, registration information, common accommodations, and information about the transition to college. We encourage you to review the information prior to the resource fair. Feel free to bring a copy while attending Orientation with any notes or questions! We look forward to seeing you!
