Accessibility and Disability IT Support
The Disability IT Support webpages provide information, and access to advice and resources, for all staff and students at UCL who have identified that they have a disability, or an ergonomic need, and require support with IT. They also aim to provide guidance to managers and academic staff, about the provisions they should make for disabled staff and students.

The SENIT Suite is a dedicated IT workroom that provides improved access for students with disabilities and long-term medical conditions.
Students must book an induction via Student Disability Services before access to the SENIT Suite will be granted. The induction will introduce you to assistive software specific to your needs, if necessary, and will also cover safety, such as fire evacuation procedures, as well as our rules, which you will be expected to adhere to while using the SENIT Suite.
