Adapted and Priority Accommodation
Here to help you find the right room for you
Students with physical disabilities and/or medical conditions may need priority for a particular type of accommodation because of their condition.
For example, you may need priority for ensuite because of a medical condition, priority for self-catered accommodation because of significant dietary conditions, or you may feel it will be a strain for you to be living off-campus because of your condition.
We also have rooms available that feature standard adaptations for wheelchair users.
Each of these rooms is fitted with a panic alarm and has a either a large wet-room with shower seat or shower cubical area with seat, handrails and an additional panic alarm.
Each wheelchair user will have individual requirements depending on their level of mobility, so it's essential to talk to the Disability Coordinator (email@example.com) by 31 March to make sure we allocate the most appropriate room, and implement any necessary adaptations before your arrival.
Other minor modifications to rooms and residences can be made according to your requirements - talk to the Disability Coordinator Steve O'Melia to discuss your needs on firstname.lastname@example.org.
