With the University as its centerpiece, Durham provides a classic college town setting. Its downtown merges seamlessly with campus and offers plenty of student hangouts, restaurants, shops, and conveniences. Yet, nearby are 2,600 acres of forests, fields, and farmland that UNH maintains for walking, biking, skiing, and exploring.
The University of New Hampshire, located in Durham, New Hampshire, thrives in a diverse, dynamic, and beautiful part of New England. Durham, only an hour from Boston, is also conveniently close to the Atlantic Ocean, as well as New Hampshire's rugged White Mountains and pristine Lakes Region.
Postsecondary institutions are obligated to make reasonable accommodations only to the known limitations of otherwise qualified individuals with disabilities. They are not obligated to provide accommodations that would fundamentally alter the essential components of a course of study or accommodations that are unduly burdensome. Providing accommodations and ensuring access are never done at the expense of the essential standards applied to all students. Rather than guaranteeing success, accommodations and access provide opportunity to otherwise qualified individuals with disabilities.
Through consultation and evaluation of documentation and student input, each student’s needs are identified on a case-by-case, course-by-course basis. If documentation of a disability is not consistent with what is required by UNH, the student is required to obtain the needed information or assessment to be considered eligible for services. For students, with a substantial history of accommodations, with no current impact information, it may be allowable to put provisional accommodations into place on a “Conditional” or temporary time period. This again occurs on a case-by-case basis. Diagnostic testing is not provided through the DSS office as this would be a conflict of interest.
