Request for Accommodations Form

* indicates a required field


Princeton University is committed to providing students with disabilities equal access to its educational opportunities and programs. Princeton’s Policy on Disability and Accessibility is implemented in the context of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 as amended, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504), and the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination, which prohibit discrimination on the basis of disability. The term “disability” may include learning, physical, sensory, psychological, medical, and certain temporary disabilities. The University provides students with reasonable accommodations in accordance with the ADA/Section 504 and applicable state law. Students with disabilities may request academic accommodations; housing and dining accommodations; modifications to University policies, rules, and regulations; environmental adjustments such as the removal of architectural, communication, or transportation barriers; and auxiliary aids and services.

For information on services and requirements, visit the ODS website at ODS carefully considers the documentation and recommendations provided by students’ treatment providers and assesses them within the context of Princeton University. ODS cannot approve accommodations that would fundamentally alter the nature of the University’s education opportunities and programs or that would impose an undue burden on the University.
