Getting Started

Welcome to Disability Resources and Services (DRS). Whether you are new to Temple University or just new to our department, the links on this page will help you get started with DRS.

Temple University is committed to the inclusion of students with a disability in all programs and services. DRS facilitates access and accommodations on an individualized basis and provides opportunities for students with a disability to grow and develop. We work to build a learning community where people with diverse abilities are valued and included in all facets of life at the university.

Our dedicated, knowledgeable staff meets with students to determine eligibility for accommodations and discuss strategies for college success. DRS develops programs and workshops to support student retention and provides training and awareness about access and inclusion to the entire university community.

Students who connect with DRS include those with physical, visual, hearing and speech disabilities, health, mental health, and autism spectrum conditions, attention deficits, brain injuries, and learning disabilities. We value students of all backgrounds. Many student veterans, student athletes, honors students, and international students who have a disability connect with DRS. DRS is a free, confidential service.

Services are available at all Temple University campuses. All students, regardless of their home campus, should contact DRS on main campus to register. Each campus has an identified DRS liaison.
