Disability Equality Information and guidance on disabilities and accessibility

Resources within UCL

The key information for disability equality:

ACT: Agreement of Consistent Treatment, a tool to record the reasonable adjustments and flexible working arrangements agreed between an employee and their line manager.  Some employees may feel anxious raising requests for reasonable adjustments with their managers – it is hoped the ACT will ease that anxiety as it is evidence of UCL’s commitment to equality and inclusion.  Likewise some managers may be anxious discussing issues that they feel are personal to the employee.  The ACT provides a template to facilitate such discussions.

UCL Student Union (UCLU)

The Disabled Students’ Officer is the UCLU contact person for disabled students. Apart from representing the experiences of disabled students on campus the Disabled Students’ Officer holds monthly meetings in which you can talk about your experiences. Information about their events.

How to disclose your disability

Telling us about a disability or long-term health condition (whether this is a physical or mental health condition) is a straightforward process. There are several ways to tell us, including the following:

  • Selecting the relevant option on your application to study at UCL form (this could either be a UCAS or postgraduate application) – those who do so will be contacted by the Disability, Mental Health and Wellbeing team in advance of starting their course and asked to complete an Applicant Support Questionnaire (ASQ) to provide more information
  • Contacting the Disability, Mental Health and Wellbeing team when you arrive through the askUCL student enquiries system
