Student Disability Services

The Office of Student Disability Services advises Johns Hopkins students with disabilities on available services, guides you as you register for and request accommodations and assistive technology, acts as a liaison with your instructors, and provides advice and mentoring throughout your matriculation. We work with the university’s central ADA Compliance Officer and comply with federal, state, and local disability regulations throughout our process.

Our office serves full-time graduate and undergraduate students in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and the Whiting School of Engineering, visiting college students in the JHU Summer Programs, and visiting high school students in summer programs sponsored by the School of Arts and Sciences or the School of Engineering.
