Accommodations

Disabilities

We value disability as an aspect of diversity and want to ensure that you are able to fully participate in all programming available to you. If you have a disability or health condition, or suspect you have one, and would like have a confidential discussion about accommodations, please contact the Disability Resource Center (DRC) at 612-626-1333 or drc@umn.edu as soon as possible. Some accommodations may take a few weeks to arrange.

You are also welcome to visit the DRC (180 McNamara) at the end of Day 2 of orientation for a brief informational meeting.  However, if you would like to register with the DRC to arrange formal accommodations, you would need to schedule an initial appointment in advance.

Mobility Issues

If you have a short-term disability (i.e. broken leg) and would have difficulty walking long distances during Orientation, please contact the Orientation & First-Year Programs office for accommodations at 800-234-1979.

Mobility accommodations for Welcome Week can be indicated on Welcome Week Event Selection and accommodations for Transfer Welcome Days can be indicated on the registration form.

Dietary Accommodations

Vegetarian options are available. If you are in need of additional dietary accommodations besides vegetarian, please contact our office at (800) 234-1979 or (612) 624-1979 two weeks prior to your orientation date.

Dietary accommodations for Welcome Week can be indicated on Welcome Week Event Selection and accommodations for Transfer Welcome Days can be indicated on the registration form.

Ramadan

Will you be observing Ramadan during your Orientation? If so, please contact OFYP at (800) 234-1979 or (612) 624-1979 to schedule your meals.
