Adaptations and accommodation on medical grounds

A full range of the accommodation available, including costs can be seen at the Accommodation Office

If you have specific accommodation needs, please disclose this on your accommodation application form in the notes section or contact us to discuss the options.

There are single rooms on campus at Colchester and Southend suitable for wheelchair users and those with hearing impairments. Further adaptations can be made to suit your individual requirements (although major structural adaptations are not usually possible). 
As a new student, please ensure you apply by the deadline
In subsequent years you can apply for accommodation on medical grounds (single rooms only). You will need to demonstrate that you have a physical or sensory impairment or medical condition which severely restricts your mobility
. The form includes permission for us to send a questionnaire to your doctor to find out how your mobility is impaired.  Application forms are available from Student Support.
