Accommodate Software

Managing student accommodations is getting a refresh. Beginning in the summer term 2022, the Student Accessibility Centre (Halifax) and Student Success Centre (Truro) will utilize a new software application – appropriately named Accommodate – to streamline student accommodations.

This software will help all users (students, faculty, and staff) more effectively and efficiently manage the student accommodation process.

What's different?

For the first time, students will have a seamless experience requesting accommodations, uploading documentation, accessing peer course notes, and scheduling an accommodated exam all in one single environment. Students can also access all formal accommodation letters in Accommodate. Students can review this Quick-Start Student User Guide (pdf 447 kb). You must log-in using your NetId and not your alias.

This software will also enable faculty to receive letters of notification and identify testing details all in one single environment. Click here for a Quick-Start Faculty User Guide. You must log-in using your NetID and not your alias.

You do not need to register to use Accommodate. If you are experiencing errors accessing the system, remember to log-in with your Dalhousie NetID (e.g. ab123456) and password, not your alias email. The Centre will delete all accounts not associated with a Dalhousie NetID.  

What's the same?

Processes, largely, remain the same. More importantly, service levels and our commitment to accessibility remain the same.
