About the Disability Resource Centre

The Disability Resource Centre at UBC Okanagan advances access and inclusion for disabled students in all aspects of university life. We work with students to determine and facilitate reasonable accommodations. We build relationships with campus and community partners to foster an inclusive university experience.

Registration with the DRC is required for students to receive academic accommodations. Please see our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for detailed information about the DRC, eligibility for registration, and how we support students.
