Disability Resources for Students (DRS) is dedicated to ensuring access and inclusion for all students with disabilities on the UW Tacoma campus. Any enrolled student at UW Tacoma who has an appropriately documented physical, emotional, or mental disability that substantially limits one or more major life activities (including walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning and working), is eligible for services from DRS.
DRS provides services to students who are enrolled at the University of Washington Bothell. Academic accommodations, if reasonable and appropriate, are provided to students with a permanent or temporary physical, emotional, or sensory disability. A student must meet with a DRS counselor in order to receive services, and may be asked to provide documentation of their disability. There is no minimal or baseline disability that one must have to receive services. If you have a disability that affects you academically, you may be eligible for services.
All individuals may use facilities such as restrooms, locker rooms, and changing rooms that correspond with their gender identity; in other words, individuals may use the restroom of the gender they identify with. This is consistent with WAC 162-32-060
Gender neutral restrooms are available for anyone to use, including people who are trans or genderqueer. They provide greater privacy for those who prefer it, and are accessible to persons with disabilities who have a caregiver of a different gender or to parents with a child of a different gender than themselves.
