Setting up Your Support

Setting up support during the coronavirus pandemic

Our offices are currently closed due to the coronavirus pandemic and our staff are working from home to support our students and applicants.

During this time, please continue to follow the process outlined below to set up your support, and contact us via email at disability@leeds.ac.uk where we will be happy to support you remotely.

Our evidence page contains information about revisions to evidence requirements during the pandemic.


Standard process for setting up support 

In order to set up your support, you are required to complete two steps: complete our sign-up form AND provide evidence of your disability.

The sign-up form will take you 5-10 minutes to complete and will ask you questions about your disability, academic requirements and any support you may have previously received. During the sign-up form, you will be asked to provide evidence of your disability. This evidence can also be submitted afterward by emailing disability@leeds.ac.uk or by visiting our reception on the ground floor of the Chemistry West building.

If you are uncertain about the evidence you require or have any questions about this, there are many ways to get in contact with us. You can call us on 0113 343 3927, email us at disability@leeds.ac.uk or attend one of our drop-in sessions with our front of house team.

Our drop-in sessions are 9.30am-4pm Monday to Friday. Appointments are 10 minutes and are available on a first come first served basis. 


What happens next?

Once we have received your sign-up form and evidence, you will receive a confirmation email from us. We aim to send this within two working days. We will then process your documents and pass this through to a Disability Advisor in our team so they can begin setting up your support.

Your Disability Advisor will inform you of any support put in place. Please contact your Disability Advisor if you feel the support put in place does not meet your requirements as we may be able to make alterations to this. Contact our front of house team if you would like any further information or for an update on your progress.
