Northeastern University Orientation
Students with Disabilities

The Office of New Student Orientation and Parent and Family Programs works closely with the Disability Resource Center (DRC) to provide accommodations and services to students and families with disabilities while here for orientation.

If you require accessible housing during your stay on campus (such as wheelchair access, visual fire alarms, etc.), please note that on the orientation registration site.

If you are Deaf or hard of hearing, please list any communication access needs at the time of registration. We can arrange for American Sign Language interpreters, Signed English interpreters, Oral interpreters, tactile or close-vision interpreters, CART, or assistive listening devices. If you have a vision disability and need written materials in an alternate format (such as Braille, audio taped, etc.), please indicate that on your registration form.

IMPORTANT: All accommodations and services provided during orientation are for orientation purposes only. To receive ongoing accommodations and services during the semester, you must provide acceptable documentation to the Disability Resource Center (DRC) and meet with a DRC specialist to register for services. To begin the intake and registration process or to find out about documentation requirements, visit the DRC Web site at You are strongly encouraged to begin the intake and registration process at least three months before the start of classes to minimize any delays in services.

If you have a disability or are Deaf or hard of hearing, please contact
