Students with additional requirements

Ramsay Hall Dining Room

UCL is working towards improving its accommodation provision. All newly built residences will have facilities for students with mobility requirements, and wherever possible adaptations have been and will continue to be made to older residences. Despite this, UCL’s provision for wheelchair accessible accommodation is limited. The following residences have accommodation that might be suitable for students with restricted mobility:

  • Langton Close
  • Frances Gardner House
  • John Dodgson House
  • Schafer House

Residences' location to different parts of the campus can vary and should be considered when making an application. Car parking arrangements can usually be made where necessary.

Students should discuss their requirements with UCL Student Accommodation and/or UCL Student Disability Services, at an early stage, before completing the online application, to obtain further advice. Where appropriate a preliminary visit to view the accommodation can be arranged.

Students who have a diagnosed mental health condition which they feel may affect their study can also get other support from UCL Student Disability Services. The staff there provide advice on a range of issues such as applying for disabled student allowances, making special examination arrangements and can liaise with departments on your behalf. UCL Student Disability Services also recruits a number of mentors who provide weekly one-to-one support and advice to students on how to cope with academic work, help with planning and prioritising your workload and other study skills.

Students who indicate on their online application that they have a disability, medical condition, injury or illness and who are offered a place in a UCL residence will be required to meet with a member of the residence management team so that an Accommodation Risk Assessment can be completed within two weeks of their arrival.
