Disability Resources & Educational Services


Physical and emotional health are important in order for students to successfully handle the academic rigor of the University of Illinois. At DRES we believe students should be personally empowered to manage their health care needs. We are committed to supporting DRES students in the pursuit of health and wellness which may includes many areas, such as physical therapy and fitness, mental health resources, durable medical vendors, and hospitals and clinics as well as the University's own McKinley Health Center.

The above are merely resources. It is the responsibility of the student, often with family/friends, to determine which resource and support is best for their particular needs and personal circumstances.
