About Us

AccessAbility Centre

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 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.

Remote support available from 16 March onwards

In light of the present COVID-19 situation, the AccessAbility Centre is currently providing remote study support to disabled students. You can contact us by email at accessable@le.ac.uk to make an appointment for remote 1:1 support.

As well as our 1:1 remote study skills support, the AccessAbility Centre also has a range of online study guides written specifically for disabled students.

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