If you have a long-term disability that affects your studies, you can get support during your time at Uppsala University. Support is planned in collaboration with you as a student.

There are different types of support for you when you study at the university. The support offered is based on your individual needs and aims to facilitate your studies. The goal is for all students to have an opportunity to study on equal terms.

Feel free to contact the coordinators well in advance of starting your studies to discuss your need for support.

Campus accessibility

There is a building manager at every campus whom you can contact if you would like more specific information about the physical accessibility of the campus premises. A number of Uppsala University's departments are located in older buildings, where accessibility may be limited. On many campuses there is access to resting rooms.
