Support for students with disabilities
Students who have registered with the University’s central Accessibility and Disability Resource Centre (ADRC) are automatically entitled to an upgraded Library account which means you can borrow more books from us for longer periods. You can also request any specific library adaptations you need, such as assistance with fetching books and reserved seating.
Whether or not you have registered with the ADRC, if you have a disability or a health condition which impacts your studies and you would like tailored Library support or adaptations, contact the Library Team and we’ll be happy to talk with you about your individual requirements.
