Disability Resources and Services

The Disabilities Resource and Services Center (DRS) works to ensure that all members of Temple's community participate fully in classes and have access to campus resources.

Some students with a disability choose to take their examinations at DRS because they require extra time, a distraction-reduced space, assistive technology or other accommodations. DRS offers resources to assist with funding to cover costs related to attending Temple, and other disability-related expenses.

DRS works to:

  • Arrange academic adjustments and accommodations as mandated under the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
  • Enhance campus accessibility.
  • Provide resource information and consultation to the entire Temple University community, including students, parents, faculty, and staff.
  • Act as a liaison with regional groups involved with disability services to cultivate a broad range of resources for students.
