Accessing DDSS support during the Coronavirus outbreak

Due to the outbreak of Novel Coronavirus (also known as Covid-19), the Disability & Dyslexia Support Service (DDSS) is operational but currently closed for face-to-face queries. All staff are currently working from home.

Please do not attend DDSS in person. Where at all possible, please send queries by email to

We will respond to all enquiries as quickly as we can. However, this may take a little longer than usual.

Disabled students – and applicants - can still request appointments to speak with a Disability Adviser. Until further notice, though, all DDSS appointments will be online via Google Meet.

To request an appointment, please email outlining what you would like to speak about with an adviser.

Thanks for your patience at this exceptional time.
