Welcome to the Office of Accessibility
UNC Asheville recognizes disability as a valued aspect of diversity. The Office of Accessibility works collaboratively with students, faculty, and staff to cultivate an inclusive and accessible living, learning, and working environment. The Office provides the University community with direct services, resources, education, and innovative programming to ensure individuals with disabilities have equal access to the University’s programs and activities.
Students may request accommodations from the Office of Accessibility by applying below. Students who request accommodations and/or academic adjustments due to a disability are responsible for knowing and following the policies and procedures of the Office of Accessibility.
Employees may request accommodations by contacting the Assistant Vice Chancellor for Institutional Integrity and Access by emailing or calling (828.232.5658) them. The AVC will forward the required application and documentation forms and schedule a meeting with the employee to discuss the interactive process for receiving reasonable accommodations.
