SSD determines eligibility and approves reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities at the University of Texas at Austin. We also engage in outreach across campus in order to make campus a more inclusive, accessible and welcoming environment for people with disabilities.
SSD is part of the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement and our office is located on the fourth floor of the Student Services Building. Take some time to browse through our website to find information on how to register with SSD, guidelines for documentation, and information about our accommodations and services . General resources for the UT community may be found on UT’s Disability Resource page.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to making your experience at the university more accessible!
Due to the limited availability of testing spaces at SSD, the FINAL DAY you can submit the Testing Reservation Form to SSD for the Fall 2015 semester will be FRIDAY, October 9th, by 5:00PM. This is for ALL remaining exams including final examinations!
As a reminder, you should only reserve space to test at SSD if your instructor is unable to provide your testing accommodations or if you need to use assistive technology to take your exams.
In addition to SSD’s regular testing hours (M-F 8:30-4:30), SSD testing spaces will also be available for final exams on Saturday, December 12th, ONLY from 9:00AM – 3:00PM.
You can pick up the testing forms at SSD’s front office or print them off of SSD’s website: http://ddce.utexas.edu/disability/adaptive-testing/
Contact your Disabilities Coordinator immediately if you have any conflicts or concerns.

We want to make sure faculty, staff, students and visitors are aware of the pedestrian disruptions that happen on campus due to construction and maintenance. We will update this page as we become aware of projects that may disrupt paths of travel on campus.
