Disability Support Services

The University of Waikato is firmly committed to providing equity in education and welcomes students with disability into all areas of campus life. "Disability" is a very broad umbrella term which aims to include people experiencing a wide range of barriers on campus due to impairment (e.g. physical, medical, sensory, mental health, writing and learning). The Disability Support Service works with the rest of the University to remove barriers to learning for students with disability and to ensure students' learning requirements are being met through the provision of information, support, services and equipment.

Please refer to the Resource links from this page for more detailed information. In particular the Handbook for Students with Disability provides comprehensive information about access arrangements and support available at the University.

We strongly recommend that you contact the Disability Support Staff to discuss any arrangements or accommodations outlined in the book. We look forward to meeting you and being a part of your University experience.
