Students walking across campus in morning fog

Students with additional support

If you’re studying with us and have additional needs, we have accessible, adapted rooms available in our accommodation on Frenchay Campus.

These rooms offer:

  • wheelchair access
  • adapted bathrooms
  • lever taps
  • hand rails
  • adjustable basin, sink, hob and desk heights.

We can also provide an extra room for a carer or personal assistant if required, additional charges will apply for this room.

Hearing and visual impairments

We can include visual fire alarms and vibrating pad alarms for students with hearing impairments.

Individual adaptations

We may be able to make other adaptations on an individual basis, for example if you have a visual impairment, or need a personal medication fridge/freezer (as long as we get enough notice these are needed).

Need adaptations or a specific room type?

Please let us know your requirements as early as possible and get your application for accommodation in early. We’ll contact you for more information to make sure we’re clear on your specific needs.

Assistive animals in accommodation

We can accommodate guide dogs and other assistance animals in the Frenchay Student Village and Wallscourt Park. This accommodation is first-come, first-served, so let us know your requirements as soon as possible. We will require formal evidence from a doctor before we can process a request of this nature.

Medical questionnaire

We will ask you to complete a medical questionnaire to give us more detailed information to support your accommodation application. We will also contact your medical practitioner for some information.
