Accessibility Resource Center

The UNM-Gallup Accessibility Resource Center is putting the following safety preventative measures in place to ensure the health of our staff and students: Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the UNM-Gallup Accessibility Resource Center will be modifying our in-person contact with students, staff and faculty. Beginning March 17th until further notice, ARC offices, labs and study rooms will be closed. However, the ARC Accommodations Specialist will operate remotely; student meetings can take place by email, telephone, Face-Time, or Zoom. Inquiries may be sent via email to or telephone / text message at 505-870-1490. If you need a HOLD moved, please add your Banner ID number. If you need an override for Advisor Permission Required, please add the course 5-digit CRN number. Should you require specific adaptive devices, textbook services, or an adjustment in accommodations please email me, and include your telephone number if you wish to speak with me. During this time additional in-person services, including individual proctoring, will be unavailable as our primary focus will be supporting student accommodations as courses are transitioned to alternative delivery methods. Please stay healthy and safe. Thank you.

Our Mission

The Accessibility Resource Center recognizes individuals with disabilities as an integral part of a diverse community and is committed to the provision of comprehensive resources to the University community (faculty, staff, and students) in order to create equitable, inclusive, and practical learning environments.

How do I begin?

If you were using classroom accommodations while you were in High School, you may have an Individualized Education Plan, or I.E.P.

Please ask your High School Office to email to the student /student’s family the signed version of the IEP, and that way the student and/or student’s family can email it to us.

Our hope is to provide a smooth transition into your college experience.
