The Office of Disability Services (ODS) is the primary office at Villanova University with specialized knowledge and experience in physical disability issues. ODS also advises faculty on the policies and procedures relevant to students with disabilities and acts as a general information and referral service on disability issues.
Students with identified disabilities have been admitted into Villanova University by the same criteria as other students and they have met the same rigorous standards for admission.
The mission of the Office of Disability Services (ODS) is to ensure that qualified students with disabilities will have equal access to the educational opportunities at Villanova University by eliminating physical and educational barriers. Each student will then be able to participate, freely and actively in all facets of University life. In addition the office was established to ensure that all students with disabilities receive support services and accommodations to allow them equal access to all Villanova University programs.
