How do I get support if I have a Disability or suspect I might have an undiagnosed disability?

Many people at Oxford have a disability and as such there is a lot of support available, including offering learning support, mental health advice, and support for those with sensory and mobility impairments, health conditions and neurodivergency.

You can contact our wonderful college Disabilities Rep Caitlin, ring 28 Beaumont Street, or contact college welfare staff such as Lynn or Mia. Find more info on how to get in touch with our Disabilities Rep here.

They may put you in contact with the Disability Advisory Service, who will offer you further support, including applying for funding if you require specialist equipment. For more info on the DAS see here.
