Disability Resource Center
20 Dodge Hall
Northeastern University and the Disability Resource Center (DRC) are committed to providing disability services that enable students who qualify under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act as Amended (ADAAA) to participate fully in the activities of the university. According to the ADAAA definitions, a person with a disability is one with a physical, mental, emotional, or chronic health impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activity such as caring for oneself, performing manual tasks, seeing, hearing, eating, sleeping, walking, standing, lifting, bending, speaking, reading, breathing, learning, working, concentrating, thinking, communicating, and nonvolitional bodily functions.
Students should provide documentation to the DRC at their earliest convenience to allow for sufficient time for review. After the documentation has been reviewed, a disability specialist will contact the student regarding appropriate next steps.
