Welcome to the ODA
What We Do
The Office of Disability Accommodation (ODA) at the University of North Texas exists to prevent discrimination on the basis of disability and to help students reach a higher level of independence.
Our caring and professional staff helps students learn more about their disabilities, develop techniques to accommodate individual learning styles, learn how to talk to faculty and staff about accommodation needs and develop strategies to achieve goals
NEW! Campus groups that enhance awareness of disabilities and/or provide support to students:
Active Minds is the only organization working to utilize the student voice to change the
conversation about mental health on college campuses. http://unt.orgsync.com/show_profile/43078-north-texas-active-minds

Announcing ODA JOBS!
Students with disabilities are more than 40% less likely to have secured employment a year after graduation than their peers without disabilities. The ODA has recently been closely aligned with the UNT Career Center and together we have launched several initiatives to help you beat these statistics!
