Accommodations overview, services and hours

The Academic Accommodations Service works with the University of Ottawa community to support students with temporary or permanent disability.

What are academic accommodations?

The University is committed to providing students with disabilities academic accommodations to allow them an equitable opportunity to fully access and participate in the learning environment with dignity, autonomy and without impediment, while preserving academic freedom, academic integrity, and academic standards.

The academic accommodations process is collaborative — all parties involved share responsibility. Our role in the process is to assess, establish and implement appropriate academic accommodations for students who have a temporary or permanent disability.

For more, see Academic Regulation I-16 — Academic Accommodations.

Students who need academic accommodations are encouraged to contact us by email as soon as possible.
