The Columbia University Office of Disability Services serves students within all Columbia University schools and departments. The ODS works with each student and their school to address specific needs. Emphasis is placed on students' development of independence, self-sufficiency, and self-advocacy necessary for success in the academic setting. Close coordination with campus offices and departments helps to ensure that the needs of students with disabilities are met. In addition, the office serves as a resource center to the entire campus community on disability services and issues within the University and metropolitan area.

The staff of the Office of Disability Services is committed to fulfilling the University's obligation to provide reasonable and appropriate accommodations. The Office of Disability Services surveys and determines the specific needs of students with disabilities, and develops and implements programs and policies to meet those needs by enabling these students to achieve their academic and personal potential, and facilitates their integration into all aspects of campus life.
