As of March 1, 2022, masks are still required in the Counseling & Testing Center, Office of Accessibility, and Computer Based Assessment and Evaluation. 

This practice aligns with updated university policy allowing for masks to be required in areas where employees have close contact (more than 15 minutes and less than 6 feet) for services. 


Welcome to the Office of Accessibility

The staff of the Office of Accessibility would like to welcome you to our office and to The University of Akron.

Our goal is to provide reasonable accommodations and a supportive, well-resourced environment to students with disabilities in order to promote student success in the university environment.

This mission goes well beyond the legal requirements, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, and supports the University's commitment to create an accessible and welcoming environment for all students.

Pursuant to the Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, The University of Akron does not discriminate against any student, because of a disability and does not exclude any qualified student with a disability from participation in or from receiving the benefits of the services, program, or activities of the University.
