The University also supports students who are formally recognised elite athletes and provides strategies that ensure that they are not unduly disadvantaged academically or financially as a consequence of participation in their sporting commitments.

If you feel that you would benefit from some extra support, or are uncertain about whether registration with the Student Access & Inclusion Office is appropriate for you then please get in touch to discuss your situation. We are here to support you and provide advice about the services we provide.

You can book an appointment online or by calling our reception on 02 6773 2897.  We can also be contacted by email

You can find more information below about our services and other available support, or to simply register please go straight to Registration.

You can be assured that all our correspondence with you and documentation you provide to us is strictly confidential and will remain within Student Access & Inclusion. Please also see our site on Confidentiality and Privacy.

The purpose of our service is about access to education and the whole student experience. This means ensuring that you can:

  • participate equally with your peers in all course activities including assessments and examinations – this includes course activities that occur both on and off campus
  • access verbal or written information, lectures, tutorials and practicums, computer labs, or the libraries in an appropriate format
  • access student-orientated activities and facilities.

Our goal is to assist you in reaching your full academic potential and participating fully in university life on an equitable basis.
