Disability and Accessibility Services

The first step to success is ACCESS.

Loyola University Maryland welcomes and supports students with disabilities. Consistent with our core values and in support of our strategic plan, we appreciate the diversity that students with disabilities bring to the University.

Disability and Accessibility Services' mission is to provide students with disabilities the equal opportunity to participate in all Loyola courses, programs, and activities fully and independently. We do this in two ways:

  • Collaborating with campus partners to proactively remove disability-related barriers and improve accessibility; and
  • Coordinating accommodations for undergraduate and graduate students with disabilities.



Are you interested in setting up accommodations?

Welcome! We look forward to working with you during your studies at Loyola. We are happy to talk with you about the accommodation process at Loyola University Maryland, and please email us at if you want to set up a time to talk in-person, by Zoom, or by phone.
