Accessibility Resource Center
Connect, Collaborate, Succeed at UNM is a great way to get started with us at ARC where our focus is working with students with Disabilities.
Located on the second floor of Mesa Vista Hall room 2021 at the University of New Mexico, the Accessibility Resource Center provides a variety of services to self identified UNM students on main campus as well as branch campuses across the state.
Our commitment to quality and dedication in providing the best possible accommodations to our students is the hallmark of our department.
The Accessibility Resource Center offers services to UNM self-identified students with disabilities. Students with documented disabling conditions that affect a major life activity are eligible for these services. This includes students with visual, hearing, learning, and mobility disabilities, as well as chronic conditions. The primary duty of the department is to help all qualified students with disabilities gain equal educational access and opportunities throughout the UNM community. Faculty and academic support staff may refer students when they have disclosed pertinent information regarding a specific disability.
Eligibility for Services
According to the criteria stated in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act, along with UNM Policy 2310, we require that students give proof of a disabling condition by providing professional evaluations. Students requesting services must provide documentation of the disabling condition prior to initiation of services. Please check some of the links on the left side of the page for further information.
