Access & Inclusion

Access & Inclusion is an educative hub on practices inclusive of disability within The Australian National University community.

We assist students who have a disability, medical condition or who are recognised primary carers of a person with a disability to participate fully in their program of study by providing advice, supports and adjustments that minimise the impact of disability in education.

We aim to:

  • Raise awareness and understanding of disability issues with students and staff.
  • Enable students with disability to participate fully in University life.
  • Be at the forefront of disability services provision in higher education by using evidence-based practice that leverages the University's strength as one of Australia's leading universities.

We provide training and advice on:

  • general disability awareness
  • disability standards
  • disability disclosure
  • inclusive education practices
  • physical access issues
  • education access plans.

Our work is supported and guided by University policies and procedures, as well as national legislation and standards.

Opening hours

9am-5pm weekdays.

Closed on public holidays.
