These can be borrowed by staff for events or lectures from the Teaching and Learning Area in CPS in the Kathleen Lonsdale Building first floor.

The Disability IT Support Analyst is employed by Information Systems (Desktop Support) but works with both the Disability Centre and Occupational Health to support both staff and students at UCL who have identified that they are suffering from a disability and require support with IT. Duties of the Disability IT Support Analyst range from supporting registered disabled students and staff to individuals who have a temporary impairment which is affecting their work when using a computer such as a broken arm.
