Information for students with a disability

A limited number of places are available for campus accommodation due to impact of disability. These places can only be recommended for students whose attendance would be adversely affected, due to the impact of their disability, if they lived off campus.

Priority consideration is given to students who need to live in accessible accommodation e.g. a wheelchair user, or where a student with a visual impairment would find it very difficult to travel to university. Please contact for more information.
