The University has a responsibility to make reasonable adjustments to aid staff and students with disabilities.

A disabled person is defined as being anyone who has a physical or mental impairment which has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on the person’s ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities, as defined by the Equality Act (2010).

The University has a duty to make reasonable adjustments to avoid putting disabled people at a substantial disadvantage compared to non-disabled people.

For a full overview of the Act, and details of "reasonable adjustments," visit the  Equality and Diversity website.

Students can also get support from the Student Disability Service.


The free AccessAble app gives information about ramps, lifts and accessible toilets across campus.
