Disability Service

The Disability Service aims to provide appropriate advice, support and information to help students of College, potential students and staff with disabilities.

If you require assistance for a disability or specific learning difficulty, you should register with Disability Service (DS). The service is located in the Arts Building, Room 2054 on the entrance level, past the Lecky Library.

Students who register with the Disability Service usually are/or have:

  1. Hearing Impaired / Deaf
  2. Visually Impaired / Blind
  3. Specific Learning Difficulties
  4. Physical Disability
  5. Medical Disability
  6. Mental Health Difficulties

What proof of my disability do I need to provide to DS?

You will need to provide medical evidence of your disability, or an educational psychologist report if you have a specific learning difficulty, such as Dyslexia. More information on Evidence of Disability and registering with the Disability Service is available from their website.

What supports are available?

Your Disability Officer will work with you to assess the level of support you might require. Support needs might include the use of assistive technology, assistance from our academic support tutors, and examination accommodations if these are relevant to your course.
