Center for Students with Disabilities

About Programs & Services Contact Staff


DePaul's Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD) coordinates DePaul University's provision of accommodations and other services to students with documented disabilities in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.

CSD regularly works with students diagnosed with a range of disabilities such as learning disabilities, AD/HD, autism spectrum, medical conditions, chronic illness, mental health disorders, and physical and sensory impairments, amongst others.

All CSD programs and services are free of charge with the exception of a modest fee for students requesting weekly clinician services. Students are encouraged to contact CSD to initiate the enrollment process well before beginning your first term at DePaul. This will enable students to be well-organized from the onset of the term and assist success. Explore resources and services for students with disabilities.​

A Mission Centered on Student Success

Student success is the core mission for CSD and fits integrally with DePaul University as a diverse learning community. Through individualized support services and reasonable accommodations, CSD strives to provide equal access to the DePaul experience and teach students skills and strategies to achieve academic success as well as segue into the workplace and their communities with confidence.

CSD staff works collaboratively with faculty and staff assisting their understanding of students with disabilities and how to effectively interact with them in the classroom and other situations in their life at DePaul.

Programs & Services


The Center for Students with Disabilities (CSD) at DePaul University is one unified department with two fully-staffed office locations to best serve our students, faculty and staff: one at the Lincoln Park Campus and one at the downtown Loop Campus.

Students typically use the support services of the CSD office on the campus where their classes are located. Occasionally, CSD may require students to use the alternate office for special circumstances. Both campus offices maintain the same CSD policies and procedures and collaborate closely to ensure consistent student support and equal access to all services.
