This study was conducted in universities found in Amhara regional state. There are 7 public universities in the region. One university was selected from each generation. Hence, Gondar was selected from 1st generation, Wollo from 2nd generation and Debre Tabor from the third generation universities. Qualitative case study design was used for this study.  The participants of this study were students with disabilities, teacher, students without disabilities, special needs directorates, and library and students service coordinators. Four methods of data collection instruments were used to obtain valid and reliable information from different sources, and for the purpose of triangulation. The result showed that most students with disabilities obtained different administrative and social support services from universities. On the other hand, the findings showed that the actual support services provided for students with disabilities in the sample universities were not in line with its higher education proclamations. It is recommendation that the university should work more on the social accessibility and administrative support services given for students with disabilities.
