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!
