Student Disability Services

Student Disability Services (SDS) assists students with physical, medical, mental health, and sensory disabilities to participate fully in the Cornell experience.

SDS staff are responsible for determining eligibility for services, developing access plans, and working with faculty and staff to facilitate the access needs of students in courses and campus programs.

The role of SDS also includes educating the campus community about disability issues, and helping to create and sustain a welcoming, accessible, and supportive environment for all Cornell students.


SDS is a department of Cornell Health. Currently located in the Computing and Communications Center (Room 420) on the Ag Quad, SDS will be moving to Level 5 in the Cornell Health building in summer 2017.
