Accessibility Abroad

Because we want all students to enjoy a safe and rewarding study abroad experience, we encourage students with documented disabilities to consider the types of accommodations they will need when exploring the possibilities for study abroad. Many UChicago programs may be accessible to students with disabilities, depending on an individual student’s circumstances and the host location. We will work to ensure reasonable accommodations when they can be arranged.

Keep in mind that attitudes and laws related to disabilities vary by country, and these differences impact the level of accommodation available in a particular location. Students are advised to work closely with both Student Disability Services and Study Abroad as they prepare to participate in a study abroad program. Early planning and open communication are important.
