Disability Services

Please note that we have gone to a remote service model:

Disability Services recognizes that it is a difficult time for everyone during the Coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. As a safety precaution for the community, Bentley University has gone to a remote learning and service model. This includes Disability Services.

Although we are remote, our office will continue to provide our services. This includes but is not limited to:

  • Video chat or phone meetings
  • Continuing our registration process
  • Continuing to provide Spring 2020 accommodation plans to registered students
  • Providing support to faculty to implement accommodations

If you are a current or prospective student and would like to make an appointment or have any questions, please call 781-891-2004 or email Stephanie Brodeur and Steph Bohler.

If you are a current student and would like to begin the registration process, please visit our documentation guidelines and submit the appropriate documentation. Due to staff working remotely, please email your documentation to Stephanie Brodeur and Steph Bohler.
