Welcome to Disability Support Services
Lehigh University welcomes individuals with disabilities and is committed to ensuring equal access so that all students can live, learn, and lead at Lehigh. During this unique fall 2020 semester, all programming and services, including intake appointments and academic coaching, will be held remotely. Our staff looks forward to working with all students with disabilities, whether they are taking classes in person or online.
At Disability Support Services, we work closely with students who self-identify in order to ensure equal access to University programs, activities, and services. Policies and procedures have been developed to help students become confident, successful, and independent self-advocates and learners.
We encourage you to learn more about our services on our website. You will find information about the support services we provide as well as procedures for requesting accommodations. We also invite you to meet with our staff to address your specific needs.
