Who we advise and how

The Accessibility and Disability Resource Centre (ADRC) provides confidential advice for disabled students. This includes:

  • current undergraduate and postgraduate students
  • new students and those about to start their course
  • students thinking of applying to Cambridge
  • students not affiliated to any colleges (Non-Matriculated Students)

We also provide information for staff who work with disabled students. 

Conditions, impairments and difficulties

We can advise students who have:

  • Attention Deficit (Hyperactivity) Disorder – ADHD
  • Autism
  • Sight loss or those who are blind
  • Hearing loss or those who are d/Deaf
  • Unseen disabilities and long-term health conditions
  • Mental health conditions
  • Mobility and physical impairments
  • Specific learning difficulties (such as dyslexia and dyspraxia)

When we talk about disability we use the legal definition defined in The Equality Act 2010.

Colour blindness is not considered a disability under UK law. If you have colour blindness, there may be adjustments which are helpful for your studies. Contact your Tutor or Director of Studies to discuss it.
