The Disability Resource Centre offers programs and services to foster an accessible and welcoming campus, providing access to accommodations for students to overcome disability-related challenges that impede academic success.
The Disability Resource Centre has been designated by UBC to facilitate access and inclusion for disabled students in all aspects of university life. We work with students to determine reasonable accommodations, and with faculties and other departments to design an inclusive university experience.
The Disability Resource Centre may be able to help if you have:
- an ongoing medical condition or disability that impacts your access to campus activities
- received academic or other disability-related accommodations at another educational institution
- Get started by completing the Intake Package.

If you wish to share information about your disability documentation or discuss the nature of your disability with your instructors or other University offices, you can. However, you are not expected to do so.
The DRC is committed to treating your documentation as confidential in accordance with BC’s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act: Guide to Access to Information and Privacy Protection
In registering for services with our office, you have given written permission for the DRC to share relevant information with instructors and departments to the extent necessary to ensure the provision of services. The functional impact of your disability relative to a need for a specific accommodation is the type of information that may be shared.
