Disability Services - University

Universities provide support services to students with disability including ongoing health conditions. This may include planning for assessment adjustments, exam provisions, equipment and assistive technology provision, liaison, advice and advocacy, among other services. Disability staff are available to meet with prospective students to help plan their university studies. Call or email well in advance of when you would like to see someone. For example, if you would like to meet on your semester break, ring to make the appointment at least two weeks before. If you live far away, or can't make it in, ask for a phone appointment.
