Disability Services

We’re Changing!
But it’s all good news – we’re working on giving our service a full makeover!

We’re changing to a new name and want to connect with all students who may benefit from our support. And so, Disability Services will soon become Accessible Learning Support. The website will be even easier (we hope!) to find the information you are looking for. With better navigation and more understandable information, we hope the new website will be a valuable resource for you to have. YOU CAN NOW CONTACT US THROUGH OUR NEW EMAIL: For the moment, please know, our team are working hard behind the scenes to deliver an excellent website, so you can enjoy the best possible user experience. Look forward to what’s to come and... WATCH THIS SPACE!


Queen’s University Belfast welcomes and encourages applications from students of all backgrounds

The University is committed to creating an inclusive environment and seeks to ensure that students with a disability or long-term condition have equitable access as far as reasonably possible to all aspects of University life.

In outlining this commitment, the University will take all reasonable steps to ensure that all students can benefit from the full range of academic, cultural and social activities that the University offers.

Students with a disability or long term condition are encouraged to register with the University's Disability Service to ensure their individual needs are assessed and relevant support recommendations are put in place for their chosen course of study and wider participation in University life.

Our aim is:

to provide prospective and current students and staff of the University with appropriate information relating to disability issues, and to outline the relevant resources and services available at Queen's.

 Our commitment to supporting students with disabilities is set out in our Student Disability Policy.
Important Notice

For students who are registered with Disability Services and already have an ISSA in place, your in-course supports will remain unchanged and will be reinstated for the new academic year. However, you need to let us know if you have changed course or pathway to ensure that your new School will receive a copy of your ISSA.

If there has been a significant change in your condition(s) or you have been diagnosed with a new condition, please contact Disability Services at to arrange a reassessment.

If you were previously registered with Disability Services as an undergraduate and are returning to complete a postgraduate course, you must re-register with the service by completing an online Pre-Registration Questionnaire. You will then be offered a reassessment appointment.

Disability and Wellbeing Drop-in

The Disability and Wellbeing drop-in service runs Monday to Friday, 11am - 3pm on Level 1, One Elmwood.  Here, we can provide advice and guidance on whatever it may be that is worrying you.
