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

Identifying Your Needs

Please begin the interactive process by completing the Special Needs Identification Form. Please send completed forms to:

Evelyn Lester, Director of Disability Services
101A Lathrop Hall, Colgate University
13 Oak Drive
Hamilton, NY 13346

Please 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.

Housing and Dining Needs

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

Academic Accommodations

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.
