What is a disability?
The definition of a disability is very broad and includes physical, psychological, sensory, intellectual disabilities and medical conditions.
How we can help you
Curtin’s AccessAbility Services provides a range of support for students with disabilities, physical or mental health conditions, that affect their studies.
Curtin Access Plan
A Curtin Access Plan outlines reasonable adjustments for students which enables equitable access to their studies and assessments.
Disclosing a disability
Get advice on how and when to tell the relevant people about your disability, and how much you may want to disclose.
Register for disability and accessibility support
Find out how to register for disability and accessibility support and what health professional documentation is needed.
For students who are carers of people with disability
Curtin recognises that some students provide significant caring roles for others and can help support your studies during this process.
Campus access and parking
Our Campus access and parking page details what you need to know about coming to campus, including courtesy bays, ACROD parking and wheelchair accessible routes.
Make an appointment
We have services available for on-campus, regional, and online students.
You can book an appointment by calling (08) 9266 7850 or 1800 651 878 or by visiting our reception on level two of building 109 (see map). If you have difficulty using the phone, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appointment or book online (only available for current students requiring an Intake appointment to organise their first Curtin Access Plan).
Appointments can be face-to-face, over the phone, or over video chat. Please let us know in advance if you have any access requirements for your appointment (e.g. Auslan interpreter).
Monday to Thursday: 8.30am to 4.30pm
Friday: 8.00am to 4.30pm
Please note: There may be a waiting period during our busy times of the year.
If you are looking to obtain a Curtin Access Plan, we encourage you to make the appointment prior to the start of the study period or as early in the study period as possible as they may be long appointment wait times when the study period is underway.
