Disability ServicesWelcome to the University of Houston-Victoria (UHV) Office of Disability Services (DS). These webpages are designed to provide you with information about the support services available to students with disabilities at UHV and to connect you to many available resources. In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the ADA Amendments Act of 2008, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, UHV is committed to providing quality services to students who have permanent or temporary disabilities. Our overall goal is to ensure that all students have equal access to the programs and activities that we offer at UHV.

The Disability Services staff serves as a liaison between students and faculty, staff, and community agencies to facilitate and advocate for our students. Let us assist you in the transition to university life as you develop independence and self-advocacy, and create your network of resources.

We believe that all students who attend UHV should have the same opportunities to be successful in higher education. In order to minimize the impact of the disability in the academic setting, we arrange for reasonable accommodations, auxiliary aids, and support services based on the specific needs of each student.

We encourage prospective students to visit our campus any time or call our office to discuss services. Whether you are taking classes on campus or by internet, we can provide the support you will need to have equal access to the educational opportunities we offer.

The Office of Disability Services is located in University Commons 2108A. To inquire about our services, please contact The Office of Disability Services by phone - (361)570-4287 or e-mail Disability Services .
