An Important Message to Our Students
Due to Governor Wolf's directive and to decisions of the College, the Access Services Office is working remotely.
If you have a question about accommodations, please reach out to the Director of Access Services directly, via email.
Students who received verification forms prior to Spring break should be aware that those accommodations are still in place and should be implemented, where relevant, in spite of the move to online classes. If you have questions, please reach out to the Director via email.
Bryn Mawr College welcomes qualified students with disabilities to the campus community, providing support and reasonable accommodations through its Access Services office. Students who require assistance because of a learning, physical, or psychological disability are encouraged to contact the Access Services Director as early as possible to discuss their concerns. The Director will work with the student, and others on campus when necessary, to identify appropriate support and accommodations to help the student participate as fully as possible in our programs, services, and activities. Reasonable accommodations are intended to minimize the impact of a disability as much as possible without altering essential academic or program standards. They include the elimination of physical barriers to campus buildings and facilities whenever possible, as well as reasonable academic adjustments when necessary.
Current relevant documentation of a disability from a qualified professional is required to verify eligibility and to help determine appropriate accommodations. Please note that a prior history of accommodation does not mean that similar accommodations will automatically be provided at college. Consideration of a student's current functioning is essential in evaluating eligibility for accommodations.
Food Allergies and Dining Issues
Students with food allergies and/or related dining issues should complete the Special Diet Needs Form and return it to the college’s dietician via mail or email. Additionally, students should make an appointment to see the dietician by contacting Natalie Zaparzynski at firstname.lastname@example.org or 610-526-7417.
