AccessAbility Centre

About us

The AccessAbility Centre offers support and advice for students with dyslexia or other specific learning difficulties as well as working with students who have sensory disabilities, mobility difficulties, mental health conditions, long term conditions and autism. The Centre offers the following services:

  • study skills support;
  • co-ordinating alternative exam arrangements;
  • a quiet place to work or rest.

Many students use the Centre on a daily basis because it is a quiet environment in which to relax and/or study. There are seven computers, some work spaces and a photocopier/printer/scanner. These facilities are only available to students with a disability or specific learning difficulty.

How to access support

The AccessAbility Centre provides one-to-one support to disabled students that can be accessed either in person or remotely via MS Teams. 

You can contact us by telephone on 0116 252 5002 or by email at to make an appointment.

As well as our one-to-one study skills support, the AccessAbility Centre also has a range of online study guides written specifically for disabled students.

The University’s Centre for Academic Achievement has published some specific help pages on student skills for remote study and for preparing for online assessments.
