Accessibility Resources Center
The University of New Haven takes great pride in the accomplishments, both personal and academic, of its many students and alumni. In keeping with this ideal, the University is committed to providing equal access for individuals with disabilities to all of the programs and services it offers. This commitment is consistent with legal requirements of both Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act ("ADA") of 1990 as amended, and it embodies the University's determination to ensure the inclusion of all members in its community.
The Accessibility Resources Center ("ARC") provides comprehensive services and support that serve to promote educational equity and ensure that students are able to participate in the opportunities available at the University of New Haven.
To sustain this objective, students are expected to utilize the resources of the Accessibility Resources Center as well as other campus resources to the degree they determine necessary. Although a significant degree of independence is expected of students, the Accessibility Resources Center is available to assist students should the need arise.
All referrals and inquiries concerning any matters relating to students with disabilities, accessible facilities and/or reasonable accommodations should be directed to this office at (203) 932-7332 or AccessibilityResCtr@newhaven.edu.
The ADA/Section 504 Compliance Officer is Rebecca Johnson and can be reached by phone at (203) 932-7238.
