Who will know what my accommodations are?

Academic Accommodations

Students registered with DAO are given Faculty Letters to distribute to professors and other teaching staff. These letters document the accommodations the student needs in order to access the course. Additionally, the student’s current First-Year Resident Dean or current Allston Burr Assistant Dean receives a copy of undergraduates' letters. Faculty Letters do not include a student’s disability.


Housing Accommodations

Housing accommodations are assessed on a case-by-case basis through DAO. House Administrators or Resident Deans often are consulted to determine how the reasonable accommodations will be implemented, based on the specific residential environment. While DAO does not relocate students to specific houses based on preference, accessibility of their current placement is reviewed to determine if an in-house or inter-house move is necessary.
