Boston University is committed to maximizing academic, social, and cultural integration of individuals with disabilities. Students with physical, learning, and psychological disabilities can expect to use the same campus facilities and University programs (in some cases with enabling accommodations) as students who are not disabled. Auxiliary aids such as sign language interpreters or readers are available for all of the University’s educational programs. Consultations with Disability Services staff are available to individuals or groups requesting assistance or having questions or concerns about programmatic, architectural, or communication accessibility. Disability Services, through its Learning Disability Services (LDS), also provides services to students with documented learning disabilities.
