Disability and mental health support at Kingston University

The disability and mental health advisers, based in the Student Life Centre, co-ordinate support arrangements and resources to enable students to benefit fully from their time at Kingston University.

Our specialist support is aimed at students with disabilities – including students with long-term health conditions, mental health conditions, physical or sensory impairments and specific learning differences, such as dyslexia. 

Support services include:

  • advice and guidance on support available;
  • support when applying for additional funding, such as the Disabled Students' Allowance;
  • adapted accommodation for disabled students;
  • disabled-parking permits;
  • extended library services;
  • advice on being assessed for specific learning differences (like dyslexia);
  • extra study skills support and teaching and learning adjustments;
  • equipment loans;
  • access to our adapted computers, which are reserved for students with disabilities;
  • Inspiration (mind-mapping software), Claro Read and TextHelp Read & Write are available on all student-use computers across the University;
  • information on support workers, non-subject specific tutoring or mentoring; and
  • adjustments to examinations and assessments.

What our students say

What our students say

"The mental health adviser was helpful with supporting me in managing my mental health and wellbeing at university. They discussed with me developing coping strategies and if I wanted my tutors to know about my mental health difficulties. They said it was my choice, and they would still give me support if I decided not to."
