The Role of the Office for Students with Disabilities & myAccess at McGill

The myAccess services, offered by the OSD, will be the unit which provides support if you feel that difficulties and impairments are hindering your academic performance while at McGill or if you require assistance with access.  You should contact us regardless of whether the difficulties you are experiencing are permanent or temporary, and we provide assistance to both undergraduate and graduate students.

The assistance offered through myAccess targets a wide variety of situations, from medical diagnoses to mental health issues and anxiety disorders, and also includes long term support to accompany students with Learning Disabilities, ADD or ADHD, Asperger’s and autism.

You should contact myAccess even if you are being followed by a medical, mental health or counseling unit, as the unit will be able to guide you in reducing the impact your diagnosis may have on your performance, attendance or learning.  The help available can be individual or offered through groups, depending on your needs and preferences.

The first step is to contact our office on (514) 398 6009 or to email disabilities.students [at] mcgill.ca and an advisor will be able to meet you, either face to face or virtually, to explain how our office functions, describe what services are available to you and refer you to other resources if necessary.
