Support for your Studies


We are here to help you if you are disabled, have a long-term medical condition or a Specific Learning Difference such as dyslexia, dyspraxia or AD(H)D.

From Monday 2nd July until Friday 14th September the Accessibility Team will be available for student appointments between 10.00 a.m. and 1.00 p.m. each day. Some appointments will be available at QMC, Sutton Bonington, Derby and Jubilee during the vacation period – staff and students should check with and/or

We will offer urgent appointments only at University Park during week beginning Monday 17th September as this is likely to be the time we are processing pre-entry accommodations.

University of Nottingham is committed to equality of opportunity for all its students and complies with legislation affecting access to Higher Education (the Equality Act 2010). You can meet with one of the Accessibility Team to discuss your needs at University of Nottingham. We would encourage all eligible students to apply for Disabled Students’ Allowances before they arrive at University of Nottingham. However, the University does not discriminate according to whether a student has Disabled Students Allowance or not.
