Kingston University provides disability and mental health support to help our students to get the most out of their time here.
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:

- adapted accommodation for disabled students;
- disabled-parking permits;
- extended library services;
- advice on being assessed for specific learning differences (like dyslexia);
