AccessAbility: perspectives on UTS life from students with disabilities or ongoing illness...from the practical to the creative.

Academic study is demanding enough, but you might also be managing a lifestyle which incorporates living with disability or ongoing illness. You might be long used to this or just becoming newly acquainted with it.

This website has been written by UTS students with disabilities for UTS students with disabilities or ongoing illness. The creators of UTS AccessAbility know the UTS study environment from both undergraduate and postgraduate perspectives.

Whatever your experience of education so far, you’ve chosen the exciting, inspiring and sometimes daunting experience of university study. UTS AccessAbility aims to support and inform as you map your unique UTS journey.

Important note: The Disability Resource Room (DRR) is relocating. From Wednesday 29th February 2012 the new DRR will be located in Building 2, Level 4.

How to get to the new room: from the main entrance of the Tower walk behind the escalators and turn left into Building 2. There is a corridor with signage to Student Ombuds between the men’s bathroom and the lecture theatres. The new Disability Resource Room is at the end of the corridor. Pin access only.

All the existing facilities will be provided in the new DRR, including computers, a printer, kitchen and a rest area.
