Student Disability Access Center

SDAC has moved into our new location on the first floor of the new Student Health and Wellness Building (550 Brandon Ave). For in-person meetings or proctored exams in SDAC, please enter the new building from the main entrance on Brandon Ave. SDAC is located on the far side of the lobby on the left-hand side (Suite 170). Once you enter through the double glass doors, please check in at the front desk. If you have trouble finding the new SDAC location, please call us at 434-243-5180.

Students receiving accommodations will still be expected to request their accommodation letters through their SDAC Online Portal in order to notify their professors of their accommodations. It is important that you communicate with each of your instructors as soon as possible to have conversations about how your accommodations will be provided and to make sure that you are clear on the format of each course. SDAC is happy to discuss any concerns that you or your instructor may have about how to implement accommodations.

Below is additional information on how some accommodations may be implemented:

If you need to speak with SDAC staff, please email your SDAC Advisor directly. Alternatively, you may email or call 434-243-5180 to schedule a meeting. In lieu of in-person meetings, SDAC will be conducting meetings either over the phone or via Zoom.


SDAC is committed to promoting a culture of access and inclusion for all students and all academic programs and University resources.

Our goal is to ensure that all students at UVA can participate fully in UVA programming and opportunities across Grounds. We achieve this goal through the provision of academic accommodations, support services, advocacy, and educational training throughout the University community. Our work is guided in accordance to the Americans with Disabilities Act, as amended, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. The Department of Student Health and Wellness (SHW) respects, values, and celebrates all ages, abilities, gender identities or expressions, national origins, races, religions, sexes, and sexual orientations. More information here
