Disability Resource Center

Welcome to the University of Kentucky Disability Resource Center in the Division of Student Affairs. The DRC provides services to the University community so students with disabilities have an equal opportunity to fully participate in all aspects of University life. The DRC serves students with a wide array of disabilities and this web site provides valuable information for students, parents, faculty and staff related to various responsibilities, services and programs of the office. If you cannot find the information you are seeking, please do not hesitate to call our office (859) 257-2754 or visit us at 725 Rose Street, Suite 407 Multidisciplinary Science Building, Lexington, KY  40536-0082 (Building 82 on the Campus Map).

If you are visiting the DRC from off campus, two reserved parking spaces are available in the lot beside the Multidisciplinary Science Building. Parking is also available in the Kentucky Clinic Parking Structure located on Huguelet Drive at a reduced rate. Please bring your parking stub to the Disability Resource Center to have it validated.

In an effort to reach out to more students, the DRC is partnering with other campus services to increase our availability, so we have partnered with the Study to make a consultant available for walk-in appointments. A DRC consultant will be available in the Study-North (1st Floor Jewell Hall) on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:00 to 5:00 PM. If you have questions regarding services provided by the DRC, please stop by during the hours of availability.

 

This academic year, many students registered with the DRC will be able to download their letters of accommodation through our online portal. Students will receive a letter through their official address providing the link to download the letter, along with brief instructions on how to download, save, and print the letter. Letters of accommodation for the fall semester were made available August 15, 2016.
