Access and individual requirements
If you are going to apply for University-arranged accommodation and have a disability that means you have particular requirements, we will be happy to assist.
Whether you need a specific room type or a deaf-alerter in your room, please provide details in your online application and we will contact you to discuss further. If you have any queries before you submit your form, please complete our Enquiry Form and select the enquiry topic Access and Individual Requirements .
Where appropriate we can arrange visits to our accommodation to help you make an informed choice and be confident about what to expect before you arrive.
So that we can plan effectively, and so you can secure the best accommodation for your needs, it's important that you approach us as early as you can, especially if you have complex needs. This will give you the best chance of your arrival running smoothly. If an application is made after the deadline, this may delay any necessary adjustments to be made, but we will endeavour to assist within a reasonable time frame.
Students who have accommodation adjustments in place because of their disability can stay in our adjusted accommodation for the duration of their studies. To secure this, you need to let us know by the end of February each year that you wish to stay.
The University's disability team can also offer advice, including on any financial implications that result from any formal adjustments we agree to make.
