The Disability Resource Centre (DRC) offers programs and services to foster an accessible and welcoming campus. The DRC determines accommodations for disabled students and supports faculty to implement students’ academic accommodations.
While the Disability Resource Centre staff are working remotely at this time, we remain fully functional and available during our usual business hours, Monday – Friday 8:30 – 4:30. The Accessibility Advisors are connecting with people by phone, email, and Zoom.
Exams: Students formally request their exam accommodations by registering the online quiz/test/exam in the accommodation portal. Exam Coordinators are confirming and overseeing the implementation of exam accommodations for online quizzes/tests/exams. See the Exam Accommodations During COVID-19 page for more information. There are no in-person exams for online courses.
Students seeking assistance who are already affiliated with the DRC should contact their advisor directly. See our contacts page for staff direct emails.
General inquiries or students new to the DRC can reach us by emailing email@example.com.
You can also meet with an advisor through our virtual line:
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.
