Disability at our university

At our university we have a proud culture of supporting disabled students to ensure they can thrive and achieve their aspirations.

The University’s commitment to equitable outcomes for all is outlined in the Strategic Plan; the Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Framework; and the Meeting the Needs of Students with Impairments Policy.

Our Te Ara Taupuhipuhi—Disability Inclusion Action Plan implements these commitments and through this we are focused on maintaining the high number of disabled students we have here, supporting the achievement of disabled students, and embedding disability inclusion into all aspects of the University.

More than 2300 disabled students are registered with our service annually. Many of the students we see have multiple disabilities and we are experienced in supporting students with complex requirements.
