Accessibility and support

Find out about the services and support we provide for disabled and dyslexic learners. We can also support part time learners or those with caring/parental responsibility where time on campus is limited. 

Book a study desk or group study room

Most of our study seats can now be used on a walk-in basis by current students. This means that you will not need to book ahead of using them.

At some of our venues there is the option to book a study desk. Please see this page for more information.
