Disclosing your disability, learning difficulty, accessibility requirement or long-term health condition

The College and the University work together to offer the maximum possible support to all students with specific needs. Now that you have received an offer (whether conditional or unconditional), we would like to give you a further opportunity to let us know if you have a disability, learning difficulty or accessibility requirement(s), and if you will require any support or advice when you come to Cambridge.

Some prospective students are reluctant to disclose a disability as they fear that it may be viewed negatively. We would like to assure you that the disclosure of a disability will in no way adversely affect your offer (although the offer may, of course, still be subject to other conditions, such as academic achievement).

The earlier that we are aware of any needs that you might have, the better we are able to ensure that all the arrangements you require are in place before you start here (e.g. specialist study skills support, specialist mentoring, access requirements and exam access arrangements). You may also find that you are eligible for a Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA) or other available funding to support your requirements.

Like all the colleges at Cambridge, we work in close cooperation with the University’s Accessibility and Disability Resource Centre (ADRC). Their dedicated team of experts provide support, advice and guidance for disabled students and students with specific learning difficulties. With your permission, our College staff can liaise with them to start the process of creating an individual, tailored support plan that meets your requirements. If you would like to discuss any of this further with a member of the ADRC Team, then either phone 01223 332301 to speak to one of their Disability Advisers or email them at: disability@admin.cam.ac.uk.

We strongly recommend that you inform both us and the ADRC if you have any disability. You can disclose your disability to the ADRC and provide additional information on the Student Information Form.

Information is also available on the ADRC website.
