Services and facilities for students with disabilities
Staff in Accommodation Services are happy to discuss specific student needs both at the point of enquiring about student accommodation and once they become a student in residence. There are a number of designated rooms for students with disabilities across the residences, and depending on the nature of a student’s needs, other non-designated rooms may also be suitable. It is recommended that incoming students have a tour of the residence and discuss their particular needs with our staff well in advance of university commencing. To organise a tour, please contact Disability Services who will organise for a Disability Officer to assist with the tour and help identify the most suitable accommodation.
