Disability Resources

Recognising the needs of people with disabilities.

UNSW ensures the learning and teaching experience is welcoming and inclusive and that the University’s built and digital environment is accessible for students and staff with disability.  

UNSW is a member of Australian Network on Disability, a national, membership-based organisation which supports organisations to advance the inclusion of people with disability in all aspects of business. 

One of the five initiatives outlined by the Strategy 2025 is to implement UNSW’s Disability Action Plan (DIAP). This plan aims to make the learning, working and teaching experience welcome and inclusive for people of all abilities.

The  Disability Innovation Institute at UNSW (DIIU) is a world-first initiative, harnessing interdisciplinary research with people with disability to seek innovative solutions. 

Our Disability Advisers can help put in place services and educational adjustments to make things more manageable so that you are able to complete your course requirements. 

UNSW's Reasonable Adjustment Guidelines are designed to help staff navigate the reasonable adjustment process and assist managers to support current and prospective staff with visible and non-visibile disability. 

The Disability Scholars Network consists of students and early career researchers who are currently pursuing, or interested in pursuing, research that benefits the lives of people with disability.
