Welcome to Disability Support Services (DSS) at Loyola University Maryland!

Loyola welcomes and supports students with disabilities. Loyola appreciates the diversity that students with disabilities bring to the University, which is consistent with our core values and in support of our strategic plan. Disability Support Services is available to provide appropriate and reasonable supports and modifications so that students may fully participate in life at the University.

Disability Support Services' mission is to provide students with disabilities the equal opportunity to participate in all Loyola programs and activities. The staff coordinates accommodations and supports so students can learn, lead, and serve in a diverse and changing world. The Disability Support Services staff also arranges access to all Loyola programs and activities to ensure that its mission is accomplished. Access is achieved by the development, administration, and coordination of programs and services, which eliminate barriers of any type (e.g., physical, programmatic, attitudinal, or electronic). Questions, comments, and/or concerns? Contact Disability Support Services.
