Center for Accommodations and Support Services
The Center for Accommodations and Support Services (CASS) aspires to provide students with disabilities, accommodations and support services to help them pursue their academic, graduation, and career goals.
The University of Texas at El Paso continues to take measures to ensure the safety of our students, staff, and faculty during the COVID-19 outbreak. All COVID-19 updates can be found at www.utep.edu/coronavirus.
CASS continues to work Monday through Friday 8am to 5pm and we are located in the Union East Building Room 106. Face masks are highly recommended for people who are not vaccinated but not required. Social distancing is no longer required. However, if someone is wearing a face covering, you may assume that they would prefer people to maintain six feet of social distance with them. We also have remote options available for appointments with any of our staff. Please contact us at 915-747-5148 or at CASS@utep.edu or go to our CASS AIM portal to request accommodations online at cassportal.utep.edu
The above measure is to take care of your and our staff’s health. Together we will overcome COVID-19. We appreciate your cooperation during this time.

Evacuation chairs are used when there is a fire or other reason for the electricity to go out in a building. Those that are mobile can evacuate the building by walking down the stairs. If a person that uses a wheelchair is stranded on an upper level, they can be moved into an evacuation chair, which will be used on the stairs to evacuate them from the building. Their wheelchair might be lost in the fire, but their life will be saved.Evacuation Chairs Location and Information
