Trinity is an inclusive university and encourages students with disabilities to think about coming here. There are over 1,600 students with disabilities who have applied for reasonable accommodation with the Disability Service, it offers a confidential and accessible service for all students with disabilities and aims to identify and support your learning needs during your time in Trinity. It is student-centered and is committed in as far as is reasonably possible, to empowering students with disabilities achieve their academic and vocational goals, as well as access all aspects of college life
