Student life

Disability support

We're here to help

There are many different types of disability. Vision, hearing, communication/speech, physical, intellectual and mental impairments can all present unique challenges - both for people living with the disability and those who support them.

We aim to provide a well managed and smooth transition into university life for any person living with a disability. We will give as much support as you need or want during your time with Monash.

We believe that people living with a disability should be treated with respect, dignity and freedom of independence. To achieve these aims we offer:

  • ongoing emotional, psychological and physical support
  • confidentiality of personal information
  • regular communication with your school or department to ensure your needs are being met
  • continuous assessment and monitoring (where required) of your well-being by ensuring our campus is optimised for your need - including ramp access, lifts etc.

We encourage all students living with disability to talk to us about how we can help make your time with Monash easier, more comfortable, happy and successful.
