Register with the Disability Services Office

Whether you are planning to come to Queen's as a new or returning student there are many services, supports, and resources for students with disabilities. Sometimes, as a student with a disability, it can be difficult to know where to go or who to ask for assistance. Quite often the first step may be registering with the Disability Services Office (DSO). If you believe you may require academic accommodations, the DSO assists you in connecting with those services, supports, and resources within the Queen's community.

While all students must satisfy the essential requirements for courses and programs, the administration, faculty, staff, and students at Queen's are expected to provide reasonable accommodation to students with disabilities. Reasonable accommodation may require members of the University community to exercise creativity and flexibility in responding to the needs of students with disabilities while maintaining academic standards.
