We are UW’s center for disabled, chronically ill, mad/mentally ill, Neurodivergent and Deaf students! You don’t need a doctor’s note to come hang out here. Check out our regularly occurring events like ASL Club, Mad Campus, and Nap and Snack, plus our special events bringing Disabled performers, artists and community organizers to campus.<
