Student Disability Services

Congratulations, and welcome to UCSF!

We are happy to provide you with information about Student Disability Services (SDS) at UCSF. Below you will find information regarding disability accommodations, services, and housing. You may also wish to take a look at the information we have put together for prospective students on the SDS Web site.

How to Register

Accommodations and Services

Students requesting accommodations must first register with SDS. These steps include completing an online application for accommodations and providing documentation of your disability. Please note that once SDS receives your application and disability documentation, SDS will review it and contact you within a reasonable time frame. As such, please provide both items with sufficient time for a decision to be made before your classes begin. If you have questions about the suitability of your documentation, please do not hesitate to contact SDS to discuss further.


For students requiring accommodations for housing, please indicate this request on your Request for Accommodations and on your housing application. Note that additional procedures for requesting housing accommodations are required, and full information can be found here. Housing on campus is limited, so we encourage you not to delay in submitting your housing accommodation request.

**Most Importantly**

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or to schedule an appointment for a meeting at our office or by phone. We will be happy to discuss any of these items in more detail with you and to discuss your circumstances in particular.

Please note that any forms and disability documentation can be submitted to [email protected]. E-mail is the most effective method of communication with SDS.

We look forward to working with you, and again, congratulations and welcome to UCSF!
