About Us – disability support services

Our mission is to promote access and equity for students with disability, mental health or medical conditions. We want to enable people whose study is affected by temporary, fluctuating, or permanent conditions to participate as fully and independently as possible in the community at Monash University.

Monash, like all public bodies in Australia, has obligations under the Commonwealth Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (DDA) which make it unlawful to discriminate against people with disability.

Our  team: …

  • Provides specialist information on support services, facilities and adaptive equipment at Monash.
  • Registers students on the basis on medical documentation; assesses support requirements; and co-ordinates services.
  • Provides advice to prospective and current students as well as academic and professional staff of the University.
  • Liaises within the University to promote the continuous development of best inclusive practices in teaching and assessment.

Typical services include:

  • Note takers, readers, scribes, and Auslan interpreters
  • Readings in alternative formats
  • Loan of electric scooters on campus
  • Adaptive equipment and software
  • Alternative exam arrangements
  • Library support, including access to Adaptive Technology Rooms and Resting Rooms.
