Disability support

We offer a range of services and adjustments to help you achieve your academic goals and minimise the impact a disability can have on your experience at university.


The University is dedicated to ensuring that all students have equal access to learning.

By registering with Inclusion and Disability Services students who have a disability can gain access to the adjustments and services they need to succeed in their studies.

Types of adjustment might include:

  • assessment and exam adjustments
  • alternative formatting
  • timetable adjustments
  • access to assistive technology
  • lecture support
  • library services.

Eligibility for these services is determined on an individual needs basis, upon review of the recommendations made in your supporting documentation and your consultation with a Inclusion and Disability Services Officer.

Help and support

As a student with a disability, Inclusion and Disability Services Officers are your main point of contact. They can liaise with your faculty or school to make sure you are provided reasonable adjustments and support.

Each faculty or school also has at least one Faculty Disability Liaison Officer (FDLO) who can provide quick advice and support specific to your learning environment.

You can reach the Inclusion and Disability Services team on +61 2 8627 8422 or
