Advice and Contacts

Restricted items

Many items are stocked specifically to assist staff and students who have heatlh difficulties, disabilities or dyslexia. We restrict access to these items and require borrowers to obtain a referral before they can be issued.

Restrictions are in place:

  • to ensure that equipment is suited to your needs
  • to ensure that popular items are available to those with disability/health related needs

If you are a Student

The Student Wellbeing Service provides advice and support to students with disabilities, dyslexia or health conditions. Please contact this team for advice on suitable equipment and to reserve restricted items.

If you are a member of Staff

If you wish to borrow restricted equipment to adjust your computer workstation please first of all make sure that you have had a current workstation assessment from your school DSE assessor. Your DSE asessor will advise you on whether to contact the Safety Office or Occupational Health to reserve equipment for you.

If you need to borrow equipment as a result of temporary or permanent health difficulties please contact Occupational Health.
