Accessibility and Disability Services

Welcome to the University of Maryland, Baltimore County’s Office of Accessibility & Disability Services (ADS)

Diversity and inclusion are fundamental values at UMBC, and we are committed to providing access to individuals with disabilities in all of our programs, activities and services. Whether you are a new student who has questions related to the transition of accommodations from high school or community college, a visitor looking for accessible parking and pathways on campus, or an employee requesting accommodations in order to perform the essential functions of your job, we offer resources and support to ensure you can take advantage of all that UMBC has to offer.

Our staff remain committed to supporting our students, faculty and staff during the transition to remote campus operations and online learning.

ADS staff are working remotely to ensure that disability support services continue to be available. We are also working in partnership with Human Resources, supervisors and department chairs to address health-related concerns for employee situations. Your questions and concerns are welcome and appointments will be scheduled via Webex and by phone since in-office meetings are currently restricted. Staff will be answering email and phone voicemail messages daily Monday through Friday from 9 AM to 5:00 PM.
