Library services for students with a disability

Do you have a special need that requires some assistance?

We provide assistance to our students who have special needs, due to physical or psychological reasons, that would prevent access to resources such as books, journals etc.

We also provide facilities such as study spaces and equipment.

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

Are you new to the University? Or have you recently acquired a condition that makes it difficult for you to use the library like you used to?

If you are new to the university, you may have already contacted Student Equity and Disability Support to enquire about the services offered by them.

If you have not already done so, or you have now discovered that you would benefit from special assistance, please visit the homepage of Student Equity and Disability Support. There you can make an appointment with staff to have your needs assessed and register you as a student requiring special assistance.

We are unable to provide special assistance to students from other universities.
