Students with Additional Accommodation Needs
Room Requirements on Medical or Disability Grounds
We ask that all students who have additional
needs relating to their accommodation on medical grounds or because
of a disability let us know when you return your application form
. We will then send you a more detailed questionnaire to
assess how we can help you. The
earlier we are aware of your requirements the better, as this gives
us more time to prepare.
The type of assistance we can offer ranges from
allocation of a fully wheelchair accessible room to minor
alterations such as supplying a fridge for medication, or making
sure you have the choice of an ensuite bathroom if you need one for
a specific reason.
Depending on the complexity of your needs the Accommodation
Office will stay in touch with you and the Disability Advice Team
throughout the application process to make sure you are placed in
the most suitable accommodation.
Please note that although it is our aim to accommodate all
students with a disability in the year of their original
application, if your requirements mean that we need to carry
out major works to adapt accommodation we may need to ask a student
to defer for a year to give us the time to carry this out. We
are not able to guarantee any request, only to give priority to
applicants with the greatest need.
If you have additional requirements that are not covered by our
questionnaire please let us know as soon as
