Disability

The University of Oxford wants to attract people of high potential to study and work here.  That is likely to include some people who are living with a disability or long-term health condition.  People may also acquire a disability or long-term health conditions during their employment here. Some people may not need any extra support, but for others making ‘reasonable adjustments’ will enable them to flourish.

The University's commitment to fostering an inclusive culture means that we recognise that people are different and work in different ways. Creativity and flexibility are the key to supporting disabled members of staff: you may want to try some of the suggestions on these pages, whether or not you have a disability.

Please tell your department or college if you have a disability or long-term health condition.

Why tell the University that you are disabled?

  • so that we can make any ‘reasonable adjustments’ that you may need in your work or study;
  • so that staff understand any difficulties you may have, and can help you;
  • so that we can monitor whether university processes such as staff recruitment are carried out fairly.
