Welcome to Disability Resources for Students (DRS), Seattle campus, a unit within the Division of Student Life. The DRS office has been dedicated to ensuring the access and inclusion of students with disabilities on the Seattle campus enrolled in our undergraduate, graduate, professional, Evening Degree and Access programs for over 30 years. Currently, approximately 1,000 students with either temporary or permanent physical, health, learning, sensory or psychological disabilities partner with our office to establish services for their access and inclusion on our campus.

Disability Resources for Students (DRS) recognizes disability as an aspect of diversity that is integral to society and to our campus community. DRS serves as a partner in fostering an inclusive and equitable environment for all University of Washington students.
