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.
