Disability information

Creating an environment accessible and inclusive to everyone

The University of Reading welcomes all students and has a dedicated Disability Advisory Service which offers advice and guidance to students with any disability, mental health condition or specific learning difficulty (SpLD).

The University has a firm commitment to diversity and inclusion, whereby inclusion, diversity and disability are fully embedded into our working culture, and visible in policies, processes, and our behaviour framework. We welcome all students and staff with disabilities.


"To be a part of the University of Reading, means to be Inclusive!"
