Thank you for your interest in the Disability Resource Center! We exist to assist the UCSC campus with equal educational access for students with disabilities. Our goals are to support retention and graduation of students with disabilities, promote a non-discriminatory campus environment and encourage student development and independence.
The DRC provides a variety of accommodations and services to currently enrolled UCSC students to support them in making the most of their educational experience.
We serve about 1500 students a year with various permanent disabilities, including: learning disabilities, Attention Deficit Disorder, visual, mobility and hearing impairments, psychological disabilities, and chronic systemic disorders (e.g. lupus, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, etc). We also serve students with temporary medical conditions such as broken bones, recovery from a medical procedure, and pregnancy related complications.
