Welcome to Disability Services for Students!

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Disability Services for Students continues to have a firm commitment toward the safety of students, staff, and the constituencies we serve. We are conducting meetings and appointments via phone, Zoom, or email.

Our physical office including the DSS Testing Center at the Mountain Campus is open. However, in-person services are available only by appointments. To schedule appointments for in-person services, please contact us at 406-243-2243 or dss@umontana.edu in advance.

To minimize possible exposure to COVID-19, we have established the mitigation plan. Please wear a mask to come to our office. If you are not feeling well, cancel the appointment or request a phone meeting.

Access Updates

Our Mission

We are committed to equal access and strive to ensure that the University of Montana, when viewed in its entirety, is readily accessible and usable by students with disabilities. Our vision is a level academic playing field for the students we serve. Through collaboration with faculty, staff, departments and other campuses, we ensure students receive appropriate accommodations and services to fully access the campus programs and facilities.

What We Do

Disability Services for Students ensures that programs of the University of Montana are as accessible and usable by students with disabilities as they are for any student. We determine the student's eligibility for reasonable accommodations and coordinate accommodations for those who are registered with our office. 

Who We Serve

Disability Services serves the University of Montana students with disabilities, who are registered with the office. We also collaborate with UM faculty, staff, departments, and other campus units to ensure that students with disabilities have inclusive and accessible educational opportunities at UM. 

We use Accommodate 

Once students register with Disability Services, they can utilize Accommodate, a web-based system, to access their documentation and verification letter and to schedule an appointment with their coordinator.
