The Letter of Support

  • General practitioner or family doctor
  • Consultant hospital doctor
  • Physiotherapist or Occupational Therapist

This Letter of Support must include details of your current medical/physical/sensory diagnosis, relevant history and a clinical summary.

If you require special consideration to be given to your application for rooms on campus because of a disability, you must ask the College Disability Service to provide a report outlining clearly and comprehensively the reasons why you should be given special consideration. You must already be registered with the College Disability Service for this.

If you believe that there are other exceptional circumstances why you should be given rooms, you must provide a supporting letter from College’s Counselling Service, your tutor, or the Senior Tutor's Office. A generic letter from the Registrar of Chambers is available for you to send to the relevant person requesting a Letter or Support.
