Equipped to Help

The Disability Services Office is ready to assist students with special needs through a variety of specialized technologies.

Academic Success is for Everyone

Our goal is to give every student equal access to achieve academic success. ODS houses a specialized testing center and computer lab designed to accommodate the special needs of all our students.  Additionally, computer equipment and software are strategically placed in several locations around campus.

Our Goal is Equal Access

The Office of Disability Services (ODS) at UL Lafayette is dedicated to ensuring nondiscrimination and equal access to all programs, services, and activities for qualified students with disabilities. Students with disabilities have access and opportunities to engage in the full range of experiences available to all students at UL Lafayette including curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular activities.  We are committed to working with students, staff, and faculty in developing and implementing the most appropriate strategies to ensure equal access while maintaining the academic standards and integrity of the mission of the university.

Here you will find eligibility information, information about our services, and critical support for a successful academic experience. We invite students to explore ODS resources, ask questions, visit with ODS staff, and utilize the programs and services designed to support your academic goals.


To receive accommodations, you must complete a confidential registration process through ODS (separate from admissions). You must first be admitted to the University with a ULID number.  The Request Accommodations link is for NEW ODS students.  If you are already registered with ODS, you can access your accommodations by using the Manage Accommodations link below.  *If you are only in need of elevator access (Griffin Hall is the only card activated elevator) send an email with your attached documentation and a copy of your CajunCard to ods@louisiana.edu
