Information for Students with Disablities

The University of Wisconsin-Madison and the School of Social Work are committed to providing an accessible, accommodating and supportive teaching and learning environment. The University has programs, resources and policies designed to assist students with disabilities to be successful in their education. 


McBurney Disability Resource Center

The McBurney Disability Resource Center is the main UW-Madison campus resource for students who have learning or physical disabilities.  They offer a wide range of services designed to assist students to overcome barriers and to enhance the quality of their educational experience.


Students in need of accommodations should contact the McBurney Disability Resource Center to receive services such as interpreting, captioning, surrogate note-taking, test accommodations or other support.


William Heis (, Assistant Director and the School’s Access and Accommodation Resource Coordinator, is also available to provide information and assistance to students. If any issues arise in receiving accommodations, please contact him for help with resolution.


Accessing the School of Social Work

There is an accessible entrance on the west side of the building adjacent to the Lot 20 parking ramp. An elevator is centrally located in the building.


Please note that in fall 2016 there is building construction that requires a slightly different route to access the first floor power door. See the updated accessibility map below for details. More accessibility maps can be accessed via the Campus Map, selecting a building, and clicking on "Accessibility Details."
