Office of Disability Services

Our Vision

Slippery Rock University will excel as a caring community of lifelong learners connecting with the world.


Slippery Rock University's Office of Disability Services (ODS) is committed to providing reasonable accommodations to students with disabilities in an effort to enhance the learning process and enable individuals to reach their maximum potential.

Welcome to The office of Disability Services!

The Office of Disability Services has many procedures in place to ensure students are receiving appropriate accommodations. This website will give an inclusive overview of what needs to be accomplished in order to access our services. ODS is the only designated office at the University for students to willingly disclose disabilities, submit appropriate documentation, and request accommodations.

Slippery Rock University appreciates that the needs of all students are different. Therefore, the requests of each individual student who registers with ODS are considered case-by-case.  This cooperative process allows us to meet with each student individually and determine reasonable accommodations. ODS also teams up with faculty and staff across campus to address student needs as well as assisting students with supports to encourage self-advocacy.

We look forward to meeting you!
