Summer@Brown: Accessibility Services
Information for Accepted Students
Brown University offers equal educational opportunities and reasonable accommodations for the needs of qualified students with disabilities. Section 504 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973, reinforced by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, maintains that no qualified individual with disabilities shall, solely on the basis of the disability, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity in higher education.
Summer@Brown offers a range of services and accommodations to assist students with disabilities. Upon acceptance into the program, students seeking assistance should submit a Disability and Medical Accommodation Form to begin the registration process. Along with this form, students will need to submit complete documentation. Please reference the guidelines for documenting a disability. Notice of the need for accommodations must be made a minimum of six weeks prior to the start of classes to allow time to reserve the available support services.
When we receive a completed form, a representative from Student Affairs or the Office of Student and Employee Accessibility Services (SEAS) will contact the student. We recommend that students contact us well in advance of their arrival on campus to allow sufficient time for accommodations to be arranged. For more information about Disability Support Services, please visit: www.brown.edu/seas.
Brown also has two accessibility maps that describe routes of travel, accessible parking and the general accessibility level of all campus buildings.
