Who can support you

Our Accessibility and Disability Resource Centre (ADRC) advisers and staff provide advice and support for disabled students. We also provide advice for staff who teach students.

Meet our advisers and staff and find out how to get support.

Each adviser supports specific institutions, academic departments or faculties at Cambridge. We are organised into 3 different teams:

  • Attention Deficit (Hyperactivity) Disorder – ADHD
  • Autism
  • Specific learning difficulties (such as dyslexia and dyspraxia)

Our Disability team supports students who have:

  • Hearing loss or those who are d/Deaf
  • Mental health conditions
  • Mobility and physical impairments
  • Sight loss or those who are blind
  • Unseen disabilities and long-term health conditions

Our Operations team provides support with:

  • student support (including non-medical help)
  • funding processes
  • systems, records and daily operations

Disability Liaison Officer (DLO)

Most departments and colleges have a DLO. It is a voluntary role that is taken on by staff members who have an interest in accessibility, in addition to their main job.

DLOs can be contacted with questions relating to accessibility in their department or college. The DLO network is administered by us and we maintain a list of who is in the role. Please email: disability@admin.cam.ac.uk along with the name of the department or college you require details for.
