Services for Students



The Equality Act came into force on 1 October 2010 and brought together separate pieces of equality legislation into one single Act to provide a legal framework to protect the rights of individuals and advance equality of opportunity for all.

The Act protects people against discrimination, harassment or victimisation based on nine protected characteristics: age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, and sexual orientation.

The University of Nottingham is strongly committed to the principles outlined in the Act and is focused on providing an accessible and inclusive environment for students in line with our anticipatory duty supported, where necessary, by appropriate reasonable adjustments to facilitate, learning, living and independence.
