Disability Services

Disabilities advisors provide support for all students with disabilities from first enquiry through to graduation

The University has been developing the Disability Service for students for more than 20 years and aims to help all prospective and current students who have disabilities.

If you have a medical condition or impairment that is classified as a disability, then Disability Services can help provide support. You may be eligible for specialist equipment, access to support workers or adaptations to study materials, assessments and exams. 

Disclosure of a disability is a key part of the process of ensuring appropriate support and equality.

It is important to inform the Disability Service of your needs as soon as you can to prevent delays to adjustments being put in place. If you haven’t yet been in contact with the Disability Service about your circumstances please get in touch as soon as possible to ensure you have the support needed to study successfully. Alternatively you can complete the Disability Service Access and Support survey to make them aware of your needs.

The Disability Service provides information and advice on:

  • Planning for university life and study
  • Reasonable adjustments
  • Specialist study support
  • Accessibility issues
  • Disabled Student Allowances (DSAs) and other funding
  • Adapted exams
  • Assessment of study support needs.

Please ask if you need help or advice on any aspect of living and learning at Lancaster.
