Office for Students with Disabilities

The Office for Students with Disabilities (OSD) provides support if you feel that difficulties and impairments are hindering your academic performance while at McGill or if you require assistance with accessibility. You should contact the OSD regardless of whether the difficulties you are experiencing are permanent or temporary. They provide assistance to both undergraduate and graduate students.

The OSD can help with a wide variety of situations, from medical diagnoses to mental health issues and anxiety disorders, and also offers long-term support to accompany students with Learning Disabilities, ADD or ADHD, Asperger’s and autism.

You should contact the OSD even if you are being followed by a medical, mental health or counselling unit, as the OSD 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 phone the OSD at 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 the office functions, describe what services are available to you and refer you to other resources if necessary.
