Accessibility and Disability Services: Welcome!

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 an employee requesting accommodations in order to perform the essential functions of your job, a visitor looking for accessible parking and pathways on campus, or a new student who has questions related to the transition of accommodations from high school or community college, we can offer resources and support to ensure you can take advantage of all that UMBC has to offer.

We look forward to working with you!
