Ways to get in touch

Disability Service

The Disability Service provides advice, practical support and reasonable adjustments to enable disabled students to access and make the most of their studies. This work begins at applicant stage when you tell us about your impairment or medical condition, or at any time in your study when you disclose as disabled.

Library Services and study skills support

All UWE Bristol libraries offer a specific service to disabled users. The library service has staff who can tell you how the service can be adapted to meet specific needs. This includes help to reserve and collect books, use specialist equipment (such as scanners and CCTV), photocopy, and convert material to alternative formats.

The University also gives help or advice about developing effective study skills. It includes specific study skills tuition sessions and essay writing workshops, which are available to all students. If you experience difficulties with organisation, time management and structuring work you may find this extra support particularly useful.

Support worker enquiries or organising support

For any support not funded by DSAs, please contact the Disability Service for advice.
