About the OSD 

Who We Serve


The Office for Students with Disabilities (OSD) at UC San Diego works with undergraduate, graduate, and professional school students with documented disabilities, reviewing documentation and, through an interactive process with the student, determining reasonable accommodations. Disabilities can occur in the following areas: psychological, psychiatric, learning, attention, chronic health, physical, vision, hearing, and acquired brain injuries, and may occur at any time during a student’s college career. We encourage you to contact the OSD as soon as you become aware of a condition that is disabling so that we can work with you.

Faculty and Staff Supporting Students

The OSD also serves as a resource to UC San Diego faculty and staff who are providing accommodations to students in classrooms and labs across campus, and we have developed working relationships with other offices on campus to streamline services to students with disabilities. The OSD welcomes opportunities to provide disability education to departments and programs, and to develop internal processes that better serve students with disabilities.

Student Veterans

Finally, the OSD recognizes the unique challenges that some students with disabilities face, including student veterans, as disability impacts all areas of life (physical, mental, academic, and social). We invite you to dialogue with us in a safe, confidential environment, and we look forward to hearing from you.
