New York City Disability Services Forms

** Important Announcement **

September 18, 2014

Dear Students,

We wanted to inform you that for those students who submitted any request for academic (non-housing) accommodation letters between August 31-September 8th and have NOT received the letters, please resubmit your request AND contact ODS immediately.  Many students who requested letters during this time were able to downloaded the pdf of their request; however, due to a formatting change, there was an additional submit button at the bottom of the page that many did not see and did not click to finalize the submission.   This means that even though you were able to download your completed form as a PDF, we did not receive the form and therefore were not able to write the accommodation letters.  Thank you to the students who contacted us and alerted us to the problem. 

The situation has been resolved and all of the forms are functioning properly.  Again, if you believe you were one of the affected students, please resubmit the request AND contact us immediately.  We will expedite your request.

We sincerely apologize for the confusion and any inconvenience. 

Please be in touch with us if you have any questions or concerns.

If you would like to request disability housing accommodations, you must submit disability documentation from a qualified medical provider.  The provider can submit a letter or the 'Professional Disability Assessment Questionnaire, which is included in the packet. Either type of documentation may be faxed (914-989-8047 or 212-346-1530), emailed to the Assistant Director, or mailed to the office, along with the Housing Accommodation Request Packet.  Your request will be reviewed upon receipt.
