Welcome!

The University of New Hampshire and Disability Services for Students take great pride in promoting the development of student self-reliance and the personal independence necessary to succeed in a university climate. We seek to create a comprehensively accessible environment where students are viewed on a basis of ability, not disability.

The University of New Hampshire believes that students have the right and also the responsibility to determine whether or not to use support services. In keeping with this objective, students are expected and encouraged to utilize the resources of Disability Services for Students to the degree they determine necessary.

We invite you to connect with us to learn first hand about the variety of options available to students with disabilities. If at any time you cannot access forms or pages on this site, and need to request an accessible format, please email disability.office@unh.edu, and we will provide you with the accessible format.

Clockwork Main Page

Welcome Back Students and Welcome Clockwork!

 

DSS staff would like to personally thank you for your patience throughout the transition in moving to a new software system. Clockwork is a more efficient and user-friendly software system, where you will be able to use your UNH username and password to log in to make an appointment with a staff member, activate and view your accommodations, and schedule your exams online.  Clockwork is a complete scheduling and data management system designed to meet the specialized needs of DSS, the types of services provided, and the students served. Clockwork was implemented to streamline and simplify the processes in the DSS office for students and faculty. 

UPDATE: Students and Faculty can now view their letters in Clockwork! 

To Access the Secure Student Clockwork portal:   clockwork.unh.edu 

  • It is strongly suggested that while on campus ALL users are on the UNH Wireless Secured network.

If you have any problems with the secure wireless, please call the UNH Service Desk; (603)-862-4242. 

Even though the paper letter is eliminated and replaced with an electronic version, students are responsible for the following: 

“You, as the student, are still responsible to meet with each instructor privately to discuss your approved accommodations. If your instructors feel any of the accommodations and/or services compromise the essential functions or requirements of the course, exam, assignment, internship, or other, the instructor may not be required to provide them. If you, as the student, dispute an instructor's decision, it is the responsibility of the student to contact the DSS staff for assistance in resolving the dispute. Accommodations are never designed to fundamentally alter expectation or standards in instructional level, content, or performance criteria.” 

There are 3 secure websites offered though Clockwork: 

Currently registered students:

Book an appointment with a DSS staff member, book an appointment to have DSS proctor an exam, and/or request & access accommodations.

clockwork.unh.edu                                                                            

Faculty:

View student’s accommodation letters by course and upload exams that DSS is proctoring. Please remember that DSS is not the proctor site for all student exams.  The department cannot accommodate the number of requests that would occur.  Faculty are to proctor their own exams unless there are extenuating circumstances.

clockwork.unh.edu/instructor 

Students who needs to initiate the registration process with DSS:

Students will complete the online registration form and upload disability documentation.  Students must have documentation of their disability in PDF format ready to upload in order to register.

clockwork.unh.edu/register 

Again, to all the students who have reached out to DSS, been patient throughout the new process, and assisted DSS with working out the glitches, we sincerely thank you!  If you continue to experience any glitches when working with Clockwork, please do not hesitate to call the office at (603) 862-2607. If they are technical, you may want to first call the UNH Service Desk; (603) 862-4242.

 

Happy fall semester!
