Disability Services

In 1978, Barnard established a program to provide services for students with disabilities which enhance their educational, professional and personal development.  The Office of Disability Services (ODS) serves students with visual, mobility and hearing disabilities, and students with invisible disabilities such as chronic medical conditions, learning disabilities/ADD, psychological disabilities and substance use/recovery.

The Office of Disability Services' mission is to provide support services to students, faculty and staff  which encourage Barnard students with disabilities to become self-sufficient in managing their own accommodations.

Other Barnard student services that may also be helpful for ODS students include:
