The University of Surrey aims to create an environment which welcomes disabled and dyslexic students, enabling you to participate fully in university life. We provide our students and prospective students with a range of support, including advice on the Disabled Students’ Allowance.
If you have a disability or long-standing health condition, a mental health problem or a specific learning difficulty such as dyslexia, you can apply for the Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA).
The DSA provides financial help to pay for services or equipment that you may need to support your academic work. For example, one to one study support or specialist software. DSAs do not have to be repaid and are not means tested.

Our Assistive Technology Centre (ATC) is based in the Library and is an invaluable resource for many students.
It offers a range of systems and services support students with disabilities, including specialist software and the potential to loan certain equipment.
A confidential support service for disabled and dyslexic students, ALS can give you advice about life at Surrey, as well as study-related support from the Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA).
