University support services

Charles Sturt University Access and Disability Services can support and assist students studying both on campus and online with physical or sensory impairments, medical conditions, learning disabilities or psychological conditions.

This Student Story (video clip) by Sharee Paton describes how she manages her study as a person with a disability.

Assistive technology enables equitable access to computing facilities to those students who require additional equipment or software to participate in their course of study. Contact a Student Liaison Officer (Disability) to find out more about access to assistive technologies to support your studies by contacting the Accessibility and Inclusion Services team.

Library support services

The Library aims to provide equitable access to all of its collections and services to all students with temporary or permanent disability.

If you need help to find the information you need for your studies, also if you need assistance to locate and borrow books and other items from the Library shelves, contact a Accessibility and Inclusion Librarian.

To find out more about Library resources and services, visit the Library homepage.
