Pregnancy Accommodations

Pregnant and Parenting

Undergraduate Students, Graduate Students, and Employees


The University is committed to creating an inclusive and accessible environment for pregnant and parenting students and employees.  A number of University resources are available for this population (see Resources, below). 

Pregnant and parenting students and employees can often arrange necessary flexibility by working directly with their instructors, supervisors, or departments. Alternatively, pregnant employees (including those who are breastfeeding) and pregnant/parenting students may request reasonable accommodations through the Disability Resource Center (DRC).   

Information about the process for requesting accommodations is available on the DRC website sections for Students and Employees.

Attendance Flexibility

Cart Service – Parking and Transportation
