Service Information Days:

Disability Services is running a number of Service Information Days for offer holders and incoming students who have declared a disability. The aim of these days is to introduce our staff and our services, and to enable you to familiarise yourself with the campus. On each of the days you will have the opportunity to:

  • Find out more about who we are and what we do
  • Meet with Disability Services staff
  • Understand more about disability-related support and funding, including Disabled Students' Allowances
  • Look around campus
  • Ask questions and get help with forms
  • Find out about the library resources
  • Gain an insight into the first few weeks of term and find out how to prepare for your start at university
  • Meet other students who hope to be starting in September

You can find a guide for the days here. If you require this in an alternate format, please contact us on 0113 343 3927 or disability@leeds.ac.uk.
