The goal of Morehead State's Office of Disability Services is to ensure that the University's programs, activities, services and the campus itself are accessible to all of our students and visitors. This site describes the process to qualify for accommodations, information about service and emotional support animals, student and faculty resources and more.
The Disability Services office has been relocated to the Enrollment Services Center (ESC) until the University Center reopens in 2018. This building's accessible entrance and parking is at the corner of Second Street and Tippett Avenue. To get here from the center of campus, you'll pass between Lappin Hall and the Combs Building and continue just beyond the "Third Street Eats" cafeteria. Note: Third Street traffic resumes immediately at the end of the cafeteria's patio, and frequently includes trucks backing in to make deliveries and empty dumpsters. It is not a safe pedestrian area; be sure to use the sidewalk all the way to the crosswalk that leads toward the building's main entrance. Once inside the lobby, the DS office can be found inside the second suite on the left side of the hallway, and signage will point the rest of the way to room 109-J.
Construction is taking place at various points on campus and it has necessitated changes in both pedestrian and vehicular routes. Even though these changes are essential to major improvement projects, it remains a responsibility of the University to ensure that the paths of travel, even though less convenient than before, remain accessible. If you are aware of an impediment to reaching any needed campus location, please let Disability Services know right away so we can work with appropriate University departments to resolve those problems. Additionally, if en route you encounter a newly obstructed sidewalk, crosswalk, building entrance, hallway, elevator, or handicap parking space, you may report it on the spot through the LiveSafe app which goes directly to University Police dispatch.
The Disability Services Office recently honored Dr. Jen O'Keefe, Dr. Brandon VanNess and Dr. April Miller for making our campus a more inclusive, accessible and welcoming environment for students with disabilities.
