Policy and definitions

How to access Lancaster University's Disability Policy and information about different disabilities.

We have put together a range of information for staff relating to the University's Disability Policy for students, including the legal framework and adjustments that students can expect. While this is predominantly aimed at staff, as students, you also have the right to know what level of service you can expect from the University. What is classed as a disability can also be a source of some confusion, so the FAQs section on the Policy page aims to answer these and other policy-related queries.

A frequent request we get from staff is for more information about particular disabilities, so our Definitions pages are aimed at explaining the conditions associated with specific disabilities and providing practical information and advice on working with students who have those impairments.
