Services for Students with Disabilities

About Us

Welcome to SSWD!

Services for Students with Disabilities (SSWD) serves students with disabilities by creating and fostering an accessible learning environment.  We aim to empower students with diverse needs by enhancing their self-awareness, self-determination and self-advocacy.  We promote awareness of the needs of students with disabilities and encourage the Loyola community to respect and care for each individual.  
Loyola University Chicago is committed to compliance with legal requirements including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1998, and the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments (ADAA) of 2008.

Whether you're a current student, faculty, staff, or a prospective student or family member, we look forward to working with you!

To request accommodations, students must schedule an appointment with an SSWD staff member

All requests for accommodations are considered on a case-by-case basis. Students may need to provide documentation of their disability from an appropriate professional.

Once accommodations are approved, SSWD provides the student with a detailed accommodation list and written verification of his/her disability to give to his/her professors.  Faculty members who have questions about providing the recommended accommodations should contact SSWD.
