Northeastern University and the Disability Resource Center are committed to providing disability services that enable students who qualify under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act to participate fully in the activities of the university. To receive accommodations through the DRC, students must provide appropriate documentation that substantiates a disability and demonstrates a current significant limitation. Accommodations are provided based on an evaluation of the information provided by students, and their clinicians, on a case-by-case basis. These services are available for, but not limited to, students with the following diagnoses:

  • Learning disabilities and/or ADHD
  • Autism spectrum disorders
  • Chronic or degenerative disorders
  • Hearing loss
  • Mobility impairments
  • Psychiatric disorders
  • Traumatic or acquired brain injury
  • Vision impairments

Students should provide documentation to the DRC at their earliest convenience to allow for sufficient time for review. After the documentation has been reviewed, a disability specialist will contact the student regarding appropriate next steps. Visit the DRC website for additional information or contact staff at 617.373.2675.

You’ll need to provide your name, Northeastern ID number, and location.  Safety escorts usually arrive in 10 to 15 minutes. A special, nighttime off-campus escort service, called the RedEye, runs from dusk to dawn to transport students to their residence within two miles from the center of campus. Every night from 7 p.m. until 6 a.m., the RedEye van will pick students up at the Snell Library. In order to use this escort, you must book a ride in advance using the RedEye app, or you can book a ride at the RedEye dispatch center located at the Northeast Security office in the Ruggles Substation.

SafeZone is a mobile safety app that is unique to Northeastern. SafeZone is a smartphone app that any student or staff member can download and use for free. This app will connect you directly to the NUPD should you need our assistance or emergency support while you are on campus.

NUPD encourages you to not only familiarize yourself with all of the services provided by NUPD but to also utilize the services and safety-related tips provided.
