Students with Disabilities at UConn Stamford
We welcome all students studying at the Stamford Campus during the school year as well as intersessions to visit our office to discuss how we might help them towards academic success and campus participation. The University of Connecticut is committed to achieving equal educational opportunity and full participation for persons with disabilities. It is the policy that no qualified person be excluded from participating in any University program or activity, be denied the benefits of any University program or activity, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination with regard to any University program or activity.
Students are encouraged to self-identify on the Stamford Campus by speaking with the Disability Services Coordinator. Students interested in receiving services should come to Student Services (room 201) to complete the Student Information Form. Please note that while some Stamford campus resources are different from those at Storrs, all students receive the same level of accommodations, according to their needs and documentation.
While there is no deadline as to when this should be done, services take time to arrange. It is strongly suggested that students make requests before a semester starts or within the first two weeks of class. Some services, such as the coordination of sign language interpreters and requests for alternate media, require several weeks to arrange.
All documents submitted to CSD are maintained in a private, electronic case management system, on a secure server that includes information about student demographics, academic programs, documentation of the condition(s), accommodations, and student contacts with CSD. Access to these files will be limited. Specific information on a student’s disability will only be shared with the student’s written permission and/or on a need-to-know basis. This information does not become part of a student’s transcript or permanent record. Students with questions about confidentiality should contact the Disabilities Services Coordinator (Room 201 or by phone 203-251-8508).
