Butler University will make every effort to provide assistance to Butler students with temporary disabilities. Determinations about specific support services will be made on a case-by-case basis in consultation with the relevant individuals within the campus community.
How can I request assistance for a temporary disability?
If a student has a temporary disability and needs assistance to manage day-to-day activities, they can contact the Office of the Vice President of Student Affairs. Call 317-940-9570 to schedule an appointment.
A discussion with a staff member in Student Affairs regarding the student's particular circumstances can provide insight into the type of services that might be appropriate. The office is located in Atherton Union, room 200, up the steps between the bookstore and Atherton Marketplace. Steps are required to reach the main door. The student may also get to the office by using the Atherton elevator at the south end of the building. On the third floor, there is a wheelchair accessible disability entrance into our office. A staff member can also meet the student at any main floor location.
Depending on the specific situation, Student Disability Services may also be involved in providing support to students with temporary disabilities.
