The University of Pennsylvania and SP2 are committed to providing equal educational opportunities to all students, including students with disabilities. Penn does not discriminate against students with disabilities and provides reasonable accommodation to a student’s known disability in order to afford that student an equal opportunity to participate in University-sponsored programs.
All students with disabilities who seek an accommodation at Penn have the responsibility to identify themselves to the responsible University office. Within the School, the Associate Director of Student Affairs is available to advise and serve as a liaison for students with disabilities.
Students may also directly contact the University Office of Student Disabilities Services. The Office of Student Disabilities Services collaborates with the Office of Learning Resources to provide comprehensive academic support, including learning strategies that complement accommodations, academic adjustments, and the use of auxiliary aids. Realizing that the commitment to students with disabilities is a shared responsibility, the Office of Student Disabilities Services coordinates with schools, programs, and offices throughout campus to provide the best combination of services. Its professional staff is available to provide consultation to faculty and administrative staff as well as programs for specific groups on topics of interest or concern. Students with disabilities should contact the Office of Student Disabilities Services at (215) 573-9235 or (215) 746-6326 (TDD). The Office is located in Stouffer Commons, 3702 Spruce Street, Suite 300, Philadelphia, PA 19104.
