Accommodations for Students with Disabilities
Please Note: Updated information for the Class of 2026 will be available in early June 2022.
Please read the following information carefully and connect with Access and Disability Services if you need academic, housing, and/or dining accommodations.
Reasonable accommodations give students equal access to all campus programs, events, and services. ADS works collaboratively with each student applying for accommodations to determine eligibility, and to identify the accommodations that are necessary and helpful to the student without altering the fundamental nature of the academic program. Please read this information thoroughly and contact ADS at hc-ads [at] haverford.edu with any questions.
If you believe you will need housing accommodations (including air conditioning and/or carpet-free) for the 2022-2023 academic year, please fill out a Housing Accommodation Request Form in the ADS Portal and submit supporting documentation to ADS by the June 29, 2022 deadline. The documentation guidelines, instructions for submission, and other information can be found on the Housing Accommodations page of the ADS website.
If you have a disability and/or medical diagnosis for which air conditioning is a medical necessity, you must submit a Housing Accommodation Request Form. At this time, the request form is all that is required. If further information and documentation are needed, ADS will contact you.
Academic and Other Accommodations
You will need to fill out the Voluntary Disability Disclosure and Accommodations Request Form in the ADS Portal, as well as provide documentation, if:
- you received accommodations in high school or other support services and want to receive accommodations in college
- you require dining accommodations or any other accommodations related to a disability or medical condition
Forms and documentation should be submitted as soon as possible.
Housing Accommodation Request Deadline: June 29, 2022
Academic / Other Accommodations Deadline: August 1, 2022
Although accommodations can be requested at any time, to ensure that accommodations are in place prior to the start of the Fall semester please submit your materials by August 1, 2022.
After Submission: Once your request forms and supporting documentation are received, ADS will set up a time to speak with you over the phone or in person about accommodations.
