The Disability Support team offers information, advice, guidance and support to disabled students and those with a long standing medical condition or specific learning difficulty which may affect their study at this university. Students who acquire a disability/medical condition or suspect they may have a previously undiagnosed specific learning difficulty should contact the Disability Support Team.
A Statement of Service is available to all students and staff.
The main location is in the Student Support and Wellbeing Centre on the ground floor of Northumberland Building at the City Centre Campus. We also see students at Coach Lane Campus Library.
