The Student Disability Platform is made up of students with a disability who want to jointly ensure that every student has the chance to get as much out of their studies as possible without experiencing any obstacles from the UvA arising from their disability.
Our goal is to create awareness and visibility within the UvA concerning studying with a disability. These include contact with fellow students and with lecturers, absence during the programme, accessibility of the buildings, et cetera. We feel that for every (prospective) student, studying should be as obstacle-free as possible, and the platform is aiming for an accessible UvA!
The Student Disability Platform also has a role in identifying problems. Are you a student or a lecturer, and do you have a question? You can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. N.B. For questions about facilities, study programmes or other questions directly related to your study and the facilities, you can contact your study adviser, and, if necessary, a student counsellor.
