Disability support

Help and support

The Disability Services main office is located on Level 5 of the Jane Foss Russell Building next to City Road, on the Camperdown/Darlington Campus.

Disability Services Officers are available for appointments via Zoom, phone and face-to-face on the Camperdown/Darlington Campus. Please advise which option you require when booking an appointment.

You can also access technological support with the SensusAccess document conversion tool.

Disability Services Officers

Our Disability Services Officers have expertise in a variety of backgrounds including health sciences, psychology, and rehabilitation therapy. This gives them an excellent understanding of how a disability may affect a student’s ability to manage their studies and meet their academic potential.

Our officers liaise with your faculty or school to provide you with reasonable adjustments and support. However, please be aware that our services do not include counselling or case management, and we can’t intervene on matters of special consideration, academic appeal or leniency.

Faculty or school Disability Liaison Officers

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.

Any queries specifically related to the registration process with Disability Services, should be directed to Disability Services via email

Canvas site - Demystifying Disability 

We unpack some common misconceptions about disability and disclosure and go into some more detail around who Disability Services are, on our Canvas page demystifying disability – how the University can support you. In a series of videos, students share their experiences of studying with disability and how assistance from Disability Services has helped them during their time at the University.

This page was designed with first year students with a disability in mind, but will be equally useful to any student who wishes to learn more about disability and the support services on offer.
