Our AccessAbility Centre provides support for any student at the University who needs help because of dyslexia (or any other specific learning difficulty), a disability of any sort or a long term condition. We will help you with whatever special arrangements, adjustments or support you need in order to study, succeed and graduate – and take part in all aspects of student life. You can contact us, in confidence, at any time before or during your course; the more notice you give us about starting here at Leicester, the better prepared we will be to help you once you arrive.
All undergraduate first years who disclose a disability to the AccessAbility Centre, and provide the relevant supporting evidence, will automatically be awarded a £500 Student Life Transition Award.
In collaboration with DisabledGo, a leading provider of accessibility information for disabled people in the UK, the University has created an online guide for students, staff and visitors. This detailed resource lets you find out about the access to all of the University’s buildings and services.
There are adapted rooms in four of our halls. Most are single en-suite rooms with an adapted bathroom and a shared adapted kitchen. One of our halls also has some adapted studio flats. Please visit our Accommodation webpages for more information.
