We would like to plan with you for any reasonable accommodations you may need at Colgate.

Identifying Your Needs

If you are an incoming or current student who is not yet registered with our office but would like to request accommodations, please complete an accommodation request.

Keep in mind that policies and practices may be quite different from what you experienced in high school or another institution you attended previously. We welcome your questions pertaining to what constitutes appropriate documentation, possible accommodations and services, confidentiality, or any other matters of interest or concern.

Accommodation Request


Academic Accommodations

Please remember,  in addition to registering with Disability Services, seeking help early and learning to communicate with faculty and advisers about your needs are essential to your success and satisfaction with your college experience. Expect to meet with your professors at the beginning of each semester to discuss accommodations you may need in your courses. On a case-by-case basis, we provide services in support of academic work such as assistance with note takers and assistive technology.


Housing and Dining Needs

For information, along with a form for requesting accessible accommodations for housing or dining, please view the accessible housing accommodations page.
