The Disability Services program, in 208 Whitaker, provides services to students with documented disabilities on the Fairbanks campus as well as the Bristol Bay, Chukchi, Interior-Aleutians, Kuskokwim, Northwest, and Community and Technical College campuses, Distance Education, and the College of Rural and Community Development. The goal of Disability Services is to ensure equal access to educational opportunities at UAF. Academic accommodations are free and available to any student who qualifies as an individual with a disability and is enrolled in at least 1 credit hour.
Disability Services operates an assistive technology lab with specialized software. UAF has an accessible shuttle bus service equipped with a wheelchair lift for transportation on campus, and most campus buildings are accessible. Accessible living accommodations are available through Residence Life. There is a swimming pool with a hydraulic lift in the Patty Center.
