Welcome to Student Accessibility Services!

The University of New Hampshire and Student Accessibility Services (SAS) (formerly Disability Services for Students) take great pride in promoting the development of students and the personal independence necessary to succeed academically and beyond. SAS provides services to students who have permanent or temporary disabilities, including students with physical or learning disabilities and students with health issues (mental or physical) which impact their UNH experience. 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 SAS 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 SAS.office@unh.edu; we will provide you with the accessible format. Click on the icons below to get started! 

This video will walk you through the Intake Form process. NOTE: You can turn captions on/off and/or go to full screen.

**Sonocent Notetaking Software**

"I never used to go back and review my notes but now I do. I wish I had it last year, it would have been so beneficial.”
-Caroline, UNH student

Sonocent is a notetaking software that allows students to record lectures on a laptop or mobile device, color highlight information, import presentation slides or diagrams next to the audio files, and include text notes. The recordings are broken up into smaller chunks of information each time it detects a pause to make audio easier to organize.

SAS is providing a limited number of students access to this software that is available in Windows and Mac. The Sonocent Link app is also available for iOS and Android.

Please visit the Sonocent website to find out more about this software, its intent, and use. SAS hopes to assist and empower students in independent notetaking and effectiveness in the classroom.
