ACCOMMODATE is specifically designed for disability services offices and features a portal for students, faculty and staff to engage in full featured management of all accommodation-related information and processes. The system will significantly improve and simplify student disability services processes, create efficiencies for students, faculty and staff, eliminate paper transactions, reduce email exchanges, provide access to student information and records at any time, and much more.

Guidance in the use of Accommodate, faculty should note the following:

  • Log in to your Accommodate Portal here: Faculty Login
  • Faculty will receive an email alerting them to approved accommodations for students in their courses, but they will be required to access the system portal to view the letter. The subject line of the email will be, “Urgent and Confidential:  Student Disabilities Information.”
  • Faculty will be able to enter the portal at any time to view the accommodation notification letter, so will not need to keep track of the specific email.
  • Faculty can view individual letters for students in their courses or can view a list of all students with accommodations in the course along with a summary of each students approved accommodations. For instructions on options to view students and then approved accommodations, view to How-To pertaining to this.
  • AI's or preceptors who are officially designated as an "instructor" in University systems for the course will have access to ACCOMMODATE to view student letters. Faculty should forward accommodation notification letters on a need-to-know basis to anyone responsible for arranging student accommodation who is not listed as an instructor for the course. Alternatively, if a department administrator is responsible for arranging accommodations, the main course instructor may email ODS to request access to Accommodate for that staff person. That person would then be able to access the list of students and accommodations independently. When logging into the system, AI's or preceptors should select "Faculty" in order to access information for the course.
