Resources for Students with Disabilities

Qualified individuals are entitled to reasonable accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Carnegie Mellon takes great efforts to provide physical and programmatic campus access to everyone. Individuals with documented disabilities may be eligible to receive services & accommodations from Carnegie Mellon's Equal Opportunity Services Office (EOS).

To access services/accommodations, individuals must first refer themselves to the EOS office and provide adequate documentation of the disability. The first step in this process is to complete a Voluntary Self-Disclosure of Disability Form and contact the Manager of Disability Resources to set up an appointment. Students may identify themselves as having a disability at any time.

Accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis. All information will be considered confidential and only released to appropriate personnel on a need to know basis. For more information on services to students with disabilities contact Larry Powell at or by phone at 412 268-2013. You can also visit for more information.
