Accessibility Services was established, under the umbrella of Student Affairs, to facilitate equal access for students with disabilities at Amherst College. Accessibility Services coordinates and provides accommodations and support services to students with all types of disabilities. Over 400 students with documented disabilities are registered with the office.

Please do not hesitate to contact Accessibility Services for any questions, concerns or clarifications. We look forward to collaborating with you.

Suggested Accommodation Statement: Cut and Paste for your Syllabus:

If you have a documented disability that requires accommodations, you will need to register with Accessibility Services for coordination of your academic accommodations. You can reach them via email at, or via phone at 413-542-2337. Once you have your accommodations in place, I will be glad to meet with you privately during my office hours or at another agreed upon time to discuss the best implementation of your accommodations.
