Disability Services

Effective November, 2017, Learning Disability Services (LDS), Mental Health Disability Services (MHDS) and Physical, Sensory & Medical Disability Services (PSMDS) have collectively been renamed Student Accessibility Services (SAS). While the new website is being developed, you can continue to access information here.

Disability Services (DS) provides educational support to students with documented disabilities in accordance with the Ontario Human Rights Code and York Senate Policy on Academic Accommodation for Students with Disabilities.

Keele Campus

To register with DS, students must be enrolled in degree-granting programs on the Keele campus of York University.  As part of registration, students must provide their disability related documentation.   Information about documentation requirements is available from our Registration Documentation page.  Please review this information.

Students must upload copies of their disability related documentation to our online  Student Accessibility Services Registration Form.

Academic accommodation is a collaborative process.  As such we need to meet with students to review and discuss documentation prior to putting accommodations in place.  Understanding a student's course/program demands is integral to the setting of accommodations.  Students will be contacted about scheduling an appointment once their registration information (disability related documentation and online questionnaire) has been received.

Glendon Campus

The Accessibility, Well-Being and Counselling (AWC) Centre at Glendon Campus also offers a range of services to students, including personal counselling, career counselling and accessibility services for students with learning, mental health, physical, sensory and medical disabilities.

School of Continuing Studies

Information for students enrolled in the School of Continuing Studies at York University who may require academic accommodations due to a disabling condition is available from our Academic Accommodation, School of Continuing Studies page.
