New College works closely with the The Disability Advisory Service (DAS) to provide support for disabled students and fully supports the University's Common Framework for Supporting Disabled Students.
If you have a disability, it is important that you let us know about it, so we provide you with appropriate support while you’re studying at with us. We will then make every effort we can to make adjustments to accommodate your needs. The nature of our old buildings inevitably makes access difficult to some areas, but some major spaces in the College, such as the Hall, JCR and Lecture Room 6, are now accessible by wheelchair and we have adapted some student rooms to be accessible.
Please contact Caroline to discuss any mobility or accommodation issues, or contact Freyja about any academic-related needs.
University Disability Advisory Service
The Disability Advisory Service (DAS) provides information and guidance so that disability-related study support can be put in place throughout Colleges/PPHs and University departments and faculties. They can also guide you through your application for Disabled Students Allowance, or other disability related funding.
For an introduction to The Disability Advisory Service (DAS), please watch this video.
The Disability Advisory Service will email, from August onwards, all new students who disclosed via their application form a disability (including a Specific Learning Difficulty) or long term health condition with offers for the 2017-18 academic year.
Disclosure and study support forms can also be found on the DAS website.
