Disabled students, welcome to your digital hub!

This page is for any student who has a disability or self-identifies as a disabled person or a person with a disability. This includes those with hidden disabilities like Crohn’s, neurodivergent conditions such as autism, and mental health conditions.

We aim to encourage all our disabled students to use our resources to come together and bring positive change to disabled students' University experiences and life beyond University.

Discover useful resources, support and how to get involved below.

  • Discrimination and Harassment- According to NUS in 2011, 43% of disabled students reported altering their behaviour, personal appearance or daily patterns in an attempt to avoid hate incidents. This often meant going out less, which in some cases led to respondents becoming socially withdrawn and isolated. Some tried to conceal their impairment, sometimes to the extent of causing themselves pain.
  • Cuts to Financial Support - The Disabled Students Allowance is currently available to students in the United Kingdom who have a disability, long-term health condition, mental health condition or specific learning difficult. Government cuts to the DSA jeopardise disabled students’ access and success in higher education.

Join the Disability Society to help raise awareness and become part of an inclusive community that works towards making a change across campus and beyond. This is your opportunity to meet likeminded people, make friends for life and enjoy events whilst making your voice heard.
