Center for Student Access

(Formerly known as Disability Services)

The University of Hawai‘i - West O‘ahu (UH West O‘ahu) is committed to making its programs and services fully and equally accessible to qualified individuals with disabilities in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (504), and all related University of Hawai‘i policies and state laws.  By providing full access to qualified students with disabilities, UH West O‘ahu demonstrates its belief that the community will benefit from the skills and talents of these individuals.

Staff at the Center for Student Access (formerly known as Disability Services) are available to answer questions from all members of our campus community (students, faculty, staff, visitors) regarding our efforts at making our campus, programs, and services fully accessible. Also, any student who would like to request an accommodation for disability should use our online intake form:
