Our Office has Moved!

To better serve students, the Office of Accessibility Services has moved to the lower level of Stewart Hall. The staff assists students with temporary and permanent disabilities at all campuses. In addition to new space, the office has re-organized to provide greater clarity and support to students with disabilities in authorizing reasonable accommodations as well as assisting the faculty by answering questions or concerns in relation to academic accommodations. For questions about accommodations or help assisting a student who is having difficulty in class please contact the office at 304.293.6700 or at access2@mail.wvu.edu.  

A Memo from the Director of the Office of Accessibility Services

The Office of Office of Accessibility Services (OAS) has reorganized to provide greater clarity and support to students and faculty in providing reasonable accommodations. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act require institutions of higher education to provide architectural and programmatic access to persons with disabilities. We are committed to working with everyone to answer questions and concerns in relation to students with disabilities and their academic success here at WVU.

First, in an effort to make our processes clearer, our website serves as the first point of reference.
