If you’re a student with a disability, here’s how we can help


We assist students with a disability in a range of ways. From helping with access to resources such as books and journals to study facilities and assistive technology.

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide assistive technology access to students from other universities.

Access: all library buildings have wheelchair access and in multi-storey buildings there are lifts to move between floors.

First steps

We recommend contacting Student Equity and Disability Support (SEDS) first to enquire about the services they offer. Students must be registered with SEDS to book the assistive technology study rooms.

We work closely with the SEDS team to ensure we can support students to make the most of our library collections and study facilities.

Our spaces

There are a range of study spaces to suit a wide variety of needs.  We have bookable rooms you can use on your own (or with a support worker) with assistive technology software or sensory supportive décor.  Height adjustable desks are also available to use in the main study areas of the Baillieu and Law Libraries.

Below is a summary of our facilities:
