How does Newcastle University care for its students with disabilities?

For those students who may need to use our disability services, we have a range of support available, such as study skills and mentoring. Advice and guidance can be delivered remotely via platforms such as Microsoft Teams, email, and telephone.   


In terms of practical support, we offer:   

  • A range of accessible rooms in our university-owned accommodation and further adaptations can be made where required   
  • A range of assistive software such as Claro Read and Zoomtext    
  • Disabled parking for Blue Badge holders   
  • A transition event specifically aimed at students with disabilities who may find the transition to University more challenging  

You can find more information about our wellbeing services here.
