About the Disability Advisory Service

Learn about the Disability Advisory Service, how to make an appointment or attend a drop in, and find contact details for disability contacts across the University.

The DAS building is closed until further notice and we have suspended in-person appointments and drop-ins.  However, staff are continuing to work remotely and you can get in touch with a disability advisor directly via the contact details below.  Mentoring, SpLD study skills tuition, and DSA study needs assessments are also being delivered online

The Disability Advisory Service (DAS) is made up of a team of specialist advisors who provide information and advice on disability issues, and facilitate access to study for all students. For each college there are two dedicated advisors within the DAS – one for students with mental health disabilities, and one for students with other disabilities, including: 

  • A sensory or mobility impairment
  • A long-term illness or physical health condition
  • A specific learning difficulty (SpLD) such as dyslexia, dyspraxia or ADHD
  • A social or communication difficulty such as autism spectrum condition.

The next tab (see top of this page 'Providing Evidence') contains detailed information about obtaining and providing formal evidence of your disability which is needed for registration with the DAS.

Make an appointment

If you would like to make an appointment with the Disability Advisory Service to discuss your support or access requirements while studying at Oxford, you can:

If you are unsure about whether registering with the DAS is right for you, or have questions or concerns about accessing support, please contact us or attend one of our drop-in sessions. 

Opening hours

We will not be running our usual Disability Advisory Service drop-in sessions in Trinity Term, due to the Pandemic.

Advice for staff supporting disabled students

The DAS also provides advice and information to staff working with individual disabled students, and promotes inclusive practice and compliance with the legal responsibilities across the collegiate University in respect of students with disabilities. Further advice for staff can be found here: www.ox.ac.uk/disability-guide.

Disabled staff who might need advice and support should contact the Staff Disability Advisor at the Equality and Diversity Unit.
