Accommodations

There are two departments within the University that help determine reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities. Students requiring assistance should contact the Disability Resources and Services Department and employees should speak with the Human Resources Department.  Visitors who need accommodations should contact the person, department, or organization sponsoring the event.

Disability Resources and Services (DRS)

To advance Temple’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, DRS provides leadership to the University community to ensure that students with a disability have full access to the University experience. DRS uses an individualized process to establish reasonable accommodations for students with a disability.
