Disability Support

We celebrate and value the diversity of all students and staff, working to ensure that all students and staff are welcome in our community and do not face discrimination or encounter barriers with regard to their disability. We promote disability equality and work to eliminate discrimination against our disabled students, staff and others who use or visit the University.
