University Accessibility Services
University Accessibility Services (UAS) welcomes students, faculty, staff and visitors with disabilities. UAS values disability as integral to our rich diversity and provides leadership to University efforts to ensure an accessible, inclusive welcoming learning and working environment for individuals with disabilities while complying with federal and state regulations.
UAS serves as a central resource on disability-related information, procedures and services for the university community and provides expertise in the development, implementation, and acquisition for best and promising disability-related university practices, procedures and resources.
The UAS also partners with students with visible and invisible disabilities to identify barriers and implement plans for access. Through collaboration with the campus community, we foster an environment of equity and inclusion.
Instructions to request accommodations
Students requesting disability accommodations from CU must self identify to UAS. Students are required to submit current documentation of their disability to the department prior to the implementation of services. Students requesting accommodations from CU must have a disability as defined by section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. In cases where documentation is deemed insufficient, the student may be required to provide additional documentation.
