About our service

The Disability and Neurodiversity team are experienced staff passionate about supporting disabled students at university. Our office is located on the first floor of the Library, at the centre of the Stag Hill campus.

All our students are offered an appointment with a Disability Adviser to create a tailored Learning Support Agreement, discuss further support you may need and offer advice on the Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSA). These appointments may be held remotely.

If you are entitled to one-to-one specialist study skills or mentoring from the University through the DSA, you can book your first session with one of our mentors. Sessions are scheduled to suit your timetable and may be held remotely.

We have close contacts throughout the University including the Exams, Graduation and Accommodation teams, the Centre for Wellbeing and each of the academic departments. We can aid you in accessing their services and to obtain the information you need as seamlessly as possible.
