Disability Services

The Office of Disability Services coordinates services for students with permanent or temporary disabilities. We are committed to ensuring that students with disabilities will have equal access to the academic programs and resources available, and will have the same opportunities to be successful in higher education.

In accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and 2008 Amendments, University of Houston-Victoria strives to provide academic adjustments and/or auxiliary aids to students who request and require them. Reasonable accommodations are used to minimize the impact of the disability in the academic setting. A wide range of support services are offered based on the specific needs of each student.

If you believe that you have a disability requiring an academic adjustment and/or auxiliary aid, please contact the office to speak with the Disability Services Manager or to schedule an appointment. The Office of Disability Services is located in University Commons, 2108A. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Phone: (361)570-4287; Email; information is also available on the website.
