Welcome to the McBurney Disability Resource Center, an office within Student Affairs. We view disability as an important aspect of the diversity of UW-Madison and are committed to creating an accessible and inclusive educational experience for students. We do this by partnering with students, faculty, and staff to design accessible environments and to provide academic accommodations so that students can engage, explore and participate in the Wisconsin Idea. Whether you are a student or instructor, are new to campus or are already quite familiar, have a long history of accommodations or are just exploring disability-related accommodations for the first time, we invite you to learn more about the Center and to contact us with any questions you may have.
Disability Cultural Center (DCC) Now Open
As of August 4, 2023 the McBurney Center renamed "Faculty Notification Letters" to “Student Accommodation Letters” to more clearly represent the content and purpose of the letters. Letters sent by email or reviewed in the instructor portal reflect this name change.

New Accessibility@UW website provides a central location for campus disability and accessibility information
The university’s disability and accessibility resources are now consolidated in a single, user-friendly location: Accessibility@UW–Madison. The goal of the website is to ensure faculty, staff and students can easily find resources related to disability, accessibility, accommodations, training, and creating a more inclusive, accessible environment.
