Disability support and inclusion

Staffordshire University London works to the social model of disability. This means we aim to remove any social barriers to education that can be created by a disability.

We recognise that sometimes disclosing a disability is challenging. However, we would always encourage you to talk to us to make sure you have access all of the support available. Our team are supportive and understanding and will always value your privacy and right to confidentiality.

We aim to provide you with an individually negotiated support programme that may include:

  • Guidance and help with applications for Disabled Students’ Allowances
  • Provision of academic support
  • Provision of support to help with mobility where that is not the responsibility of your home Social Services Department
  • Provision of specialist support

We can also advise on Disabled Student Allowances, accessibility issues, and a wide range of support and adjustments to meet students' individual needs. We also offer a diagnostic service for students who think they may have a specific learning difficulty.

If you require an assessment of specific support, equipment or software needs as part of your Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA), we can provide you with details of local assessment centres.

For more information about support during your time at the Staffordshire University London and to speak to a Disability Support Adviser, contact the Accessibility services by telephone on 01782 294977 or email disability@staffs.ac.uk.

Your mental wellbeing

We all experience difficulties that affect our mental wellbeing, and as a student, you may well find yourself experiencing some of these. These might be related to issues and events at university, or they might be connected to previous experiences or problems in your personal life; we have help and support for you whatever your circumstances.

All Staffordshire University students can access mental wellbeing and counselling support via one combined Student Wellbeing service
