The Disability Resource Center (DRC) is a division of the Office for Access and Equity (OAE). The DRC was founded in 2006 to provide accommodations to UIC students to ensure that the campus and curriculum were accessible to all. Today, the DRC serves over 800 undergraduate, graduate, professional, and health-science students across UIC's East and West campuses and online.

The DRC is committed to providing accommodations and access to all students with disabilities and to working collaboratively with faculty, staff, and University services across the campus to provide students with disabilities an equal opportunity to participate in all aspects of the educational experience at UIC, while maintaining compliance with relevant federal and state laws.

The Disability Resource Center recognizes various environments in which people function: physical, programmatic, informational and attitudinal. Some modifications to these environments are readily-achievable through direct consultation with faculty or staff.
