Accommodations Abroad

The Office of International Programs & Services is committed to supporting international travel for all students, faculty, and staff, and to offering education abroad experiences to all Millersville students. Travelers should be prepared for how the term "disability" may be culturally defined in the host country, the attitudes towards disabilities, and knowledge that levels of accessibility can vary greatly from country to country. 

Before you go, find out as much as you can about your host culture and how local people view various types of impairments and accommodations by reading, talking to other students, checking out local vloggers, and other resources. The more you know, the better prepared you will be for the interaction between you and your new environment. While international travel can be challenging, an overseas experience can help you learn more about yourself and your capabilities.

Students that need accommodations should complete the official Millersville University Special Assistance Request. IPS will need a copy of your official accommodations request. IPS will make every reasonable effort to accommodate your needs by working with your host university/ provider to assess the situation on the international campus, the housing options, the host city, and for program excursions.
