The Disabled Students’ Network is a collective which aims to represent the views of students’ at UCL who self-define as disabled, including but not limited to students with physical disabilities, long term illnesses, specific learning difficulties and mental health issues.
The Section is chaired by an elected part time volunteer known as the Disabled Students’ Officer.
We hold meetings, events and run campaigns, like the one in the video below.
The Section is not a service provision for disabled students, that is provided by UCL Student Disability Services.
The Disabled Students’ Officer is an elected representative who attends UCLU council meetings and voices the concerns of disabled students to UCL and UCLU. They are supported by union staff and full time officers that help to organise events and campaigns. The section is tasked with making sure that UCL and UCLU are working hard to ensure that all students have access to its activities and services.
There are regular section meetings that take place once a month during term time which offer you a forum to talk about your experiences. The dates and themes for each forum can but found in the What’s On section below.
We are always looking for passionate and interested people to get involved in running the section and its campaigns; so if you are interested please do get in touch.
You can find information about all our events on the What’s On Calender
We are a partner of the Stammering Through University Campaign (STUC). Working with them closely to improve the experiences of students who stutter and stammer at UCL.
