We offer a wide range of specially adapted accommodation for students with disabilities and welcome everyone to apply for Student Accommodation.
To help us find the best place for you to live, you will need to tell us as much about your disability or health condition as you can on your confidential application form. We also recommend you contact the Disability and Learning Support Service or Mental Health Advisory Service, or telephone +44(0)121 414 5130.
Telling us you have a disability
It is important that you tell Disability and Support Services about any disabilities you have so that you are able to receive best advice about the full range of support available to you.
A disability in this context may be:
- Dyslexia or another specific learning difficulty
- Long term (12 months or more) health condition such as diabetes or migraines
- Mental health condition such as depression, anxiety or schizophrenia
- Physical or sensory impairment
- Autism spectrum condition including Asperger’s syndrome
You can tell us about a disability at any time during your time at university, but telling us as early as possible ensures any support is available sooner.
Specially adapted accommodation
We have a wide range of adapted accommodation across a variety of locations. This includes rooms with mobility adaptations, and visual and vibrating fire alarms. There’s more information on the Disabled Go website and we have a mobility map (PDF - 373KB) of the University campus available online too.
So that you can experience our accommodation first hand before you start your course, we offer Taster Stays where you spend a few hours or stay overnight during the summer.
For more details, or advice and guidance about your accommodation options, please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
Or you can come and see us in person - we're in building R23 on the University map, our address is:
Ground floor, University Centre
The University of Birmingham
Telephone: +44 (0)121 414 8000
In order to ensure that all your needs in relation to studying and living in Birmingham are accommodated for, we recommend that you contact the Disability and Learning Support Service as soon as possible.
Please be aware that in order for you to access the full range of support available, we ask that you to provide as much information as possible when considering Birmingham as your place of study.
You will be asked to complete a student details form and a consent form which are available from the Academic Services useful forms page.
If you choose not to disclose your disability or limit disclosure we will still try and do our best to help you, but you may not be able to access the full range of support available.
