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. 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.firstname.lastname@example.org; we will provide you with the accessible format.

Disability Rights, Education, Activism and Mentoring (DREAM) student group at the National Center for College Students with Disabilities (NCCSD) is proud to announce:
Disabled & Proud is a conference for all undergraduate, graduate and auditing college students with disabilities. Students with any type of disability are welcome, including those who are culturally Deaf, students with mental health conditions or chronic illnesses, and those with ADHD, dyslexia, or other learning disabilities. Students in transition programs with intellectual and developmental disabilities are also invited to participate. There are no age restrictions. Nondisabled college student allies and prospective college students with disabilities may join us, but this is a conference for students and is *not* for K-12 teachers, professionals, faculty, disability services providers, or parents, unless they are small group leaders, sponsors, or exhibitors.
Each day of the conference will feature online keynotes, small group discussions, presentations, and films. We'll even have an online "exhibit hall" where you can learn about resources across the U.S.
Students will develop leadership skills and strategies to create campus change while networking with other students from across the U.S. To be sure the conference is available to everyone at a low cost (and no travel), the entire conference will be online.
Registration and details about the conference schedule will be available June 1, 2018. Additional details and pre-registration for updates is available now at https://www.disabledandproud.org/
A team of UNH faculty and staff is conducting a research study about student stress and anxiety. Through interviews, the team will be collecting stories from students about stress, anxiety, and just plain being overwhelmed. Sign up today!
"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.”

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.
