Once situated in both the second floor of Memorial Hall and several offices in Roosevelt Hall, SSD has consolidated its personnel to a singular, accessible location that gives students registered with the department the space they need to succeed on campus. “We are excited," said Victoria Simon, Accommodations and Communications Coordinator, SSD, "because our students are now able to access all of the services that they need from one place.”

The basement office includes not only handicap accessible waiting areas and filing cabinets, but also a new computer lab wherein students registered with SSD are able to work independently on exams and assignments. All one would have to do in order to access the lab is fill out a "Sign Me Up!" form along with his or her professor and take it over to the lab in 034 Memorial Hall. This lab provides students with disabilities a separate space to focus on assignments away from the hustle and bustle of the classroom.
