The Disability Unit offers a range of services to
students with disabilities, from advice on appropriate academic support
solutions, access to tailored study materials to access to financial support.
The Unit’s activities are informed by the Disability Access Policy of the Stellenbosch
University (SU). The Unit also aims to create an enabling
environment that empowers students with disabilities to achieve their full
potential through creating awareness and enabling effective integration into
campus life and the student community.
