Accessible Education Services

Harvard strives to create an environment in which all students can pursue their dreams and flourish both academically and personally. The Accessible Education Office helps qualified-disabled undergraduate students to have accessible coursework, housing, transportation, and activities; assesses eligibility for services and accommodations and collaborates with faculty and staff; and makes sure recommended services are implemented in a way that fits each student’s needs. 

“Qualified-disabled” refers to a disabled person who meets the academic and technical standards requisite to admission and participation in the educational program or activity.

Such disabilities may include those with emotional or mental illness; illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, or AIDS; learning disabilities such as dyslexia and dysgraphia; and physical impairments such as severely restricted vision, hearing and mobility. In addition, an individual doesn’t necessarily need to meet all the criteria for a disability to benefit from the services our office offers.

For more information, please contact the Accessible Education Office.

If you are visiting the University and need parking accommodations during your stay, please contact the University Disability Coordinator at 617-495-1859 or email disabilityservices@harvard.edu 7-10 days before your planned visit.
