Disability Services for Residencies


Return to: Academic Residencies and Requirements  

Qualified students should contact Walden University’s Office of Disability Services at disability@waldenu.edu at least 30 days prior to the residency to discuss assistance for the residency. Requests received with less than 30 days’ notice will be honored; however, will be addressed as time allows.  Therefore, necessary accommodations, services, or equipment may not be available by the residency start date.

Accommodations for face-to-face residencies may include:

  • Renting specialized equipment, such as electric scooters and Hoyer Lifts, for transportation from wheelchair to bed or bath.
  • Coordinating arrangements with nearby dialysis centers.
  • Hiring local service providers, such as sight guides, sign language interpreters, or captionists.

Students who do not have documented disabilities but have difficulty walking, asthma, or any other condition that impacts mobility are also encouraged to contact the Office of Disability Services.
