The Office of Disability Services works with students, faculty and staff to ensure appropriate services for students with disabilities. Fordham University will make reasonable accommodations and provide auxiliary aids and services to assist otherwise qualified persons in achieving access to its programs, services and facilities in accordance with  Section 504 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.


Applicants who have been accepted for admission or current students who would like Fordham to accommodate a disability are encouraged to contact the Office of Disability Services at 718-817-0655 to arrange an intake appointment, submit current documentation, and develop their accommodation plan with ODS staff.  Students are not eligible for receiving academic accommodations until they complete the registration process with ODS and accommodations are not retroactive, so it is important to schedule your intake appointment early in the semester.  At Rose Hill the office is located in O’Hare Hall on the Lower Level, across from the Health Center.
