The University of Chicago is a community of scholars, researchers, educators, students, and staff members devoted to the pursuit of knowledge. In keeping with its long-standing traditions and policies, the University of Chicago, in admissions, employment, and access to programs, considers students on the basis of individual merit and without regard to race, color, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, national or ethnic origin, age, disability, or other factors prohibited by law. The University strives to be supportive of the academic, personal and work related needs of each individual and is committed to working with students with a disability to become full participants in the life of the University. In all cases, the usual standards of judgment and assessment of students' overall academic performance apply. Neither the community nor the students concerned are well served by applying special or lesser standards of admission or of evaluation.

Students concerned about accessing any University facilities, classes, programs or activities, should contact Student Disability Services at: 773-702-6000, or disabilities@uchicago.edu, as soon as possible. In the interactive process of determining accommodation, Student Disability Services works with students to identify how best the University can assist them to become full participants in the life of the University. This process may require up to ten weeks. When a student submits a request, s/he and the area Dean of Students will maintain contact as appropriate for ongoing efforts to provide accommodation for the student.
