Disability Services

Disability Services are part of Wellbeing Support Services at the University of Warwick.

The University of Warwick’s Disability Service provides advice, information and support to disabled students, including those with a specific learning difficulty or a long-term health condition (including mental health conditions).

Specialist advisers will assist in providing information and arranging appropriate support to enable you to learn effectively.

Reasonable Adjustments

Reasonable adjustments refer to modifications or accommodations made to ensure that you have equal access to education and an inclusive learning environment. These adjustments are considered on an individual basis and are intended to level the playing field, mitigate the impact of your condition, and support you in your academic pursuits. Find out about support options and schedule a meeting with a Disability Adviser to discuss your individual needs; they will then contact your department for you.

The recommendations of the Disability team are informed by evidence; you must provide any relevant, recent medical or other professional evidence. If you don't already have any evidence, you can get a medical professional to complete a medical evidence formLink opens in a new windowLink opens in a new window. The same evidence can also be used to apply for Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA).

Students are recommended to make contact with the Disability Team as soon as possible and ideally before they begin their studies, so that reasonable adjustments can be made in good time.

Social Inclusion

Social Inclusion at the University of Warwick is about removing economic, social, and cultural barriers that have prevented people from working, studying, and succeeding.

The Social Inclusion Strategy will help Warwick to re-imagine the original purpose of setting up the University in 1965, to ‘increase access to higher education’.

The University of Warwick’s purpose, to achieve excellence with purpose in education and research is supported by four strategic priorities: Innovation, Inclusion, Regional Leadership, and Internationalisation. The Social Inclusion Strategy will help Warwick to re-imagine the original purpose of setting up the University in 1965, to ‘increase access to higher education’. Through this Strategy, the University aspires to remove economic, social and cultural barriers that have prevented people from working, studying and succeeding at Warwick, and to be recognised as best in class in its approach to equality, diversity and inclusion, for staff and students by 2030.

Social Inclusion Strategy


The Equality Act became law in October 2010.

The Act replaces previous equality legislation (such as the Race Relations Act 1976 and the Disability Discrimination Act 1995), bringing together over 116 separate pieces of legislation into one Act to ensure consistency and a single framework for tackling disadvantage and discrimination.

Below you can find information about three key elements of the Equality Act. You can read the full text of the Equality Act on the Government's Legislation webpages.
