Disability support

Students with a disability can apply for a £500 bursary and get 1-2-1 supervision with a fitness instructor.

Sussexsport offer three bursaries of £500 each year to provide students with a disability access to our fitness rooms and 1-2-1 supervision with a qualified fitness instructor. This is supported by the Sussex Fund and the University of Sussex Alumni Team.

If you are interested in this support, please contact Terry Cooper, Deputy Head Operations, Fitness and Performance, E or T 01273 678345.

We also offer a free advice and signposting service for prospective or registered students who have a disability or diagnosed long term health problem.

Students will meet with Terry to discuss their individual needs, requirements and interests. Potential areas of discussion and advice can include:

You can use the website AccessAble to find out how to access our buildings if, for instance, you are using a wheelchair or walking aid. Access information for the Sport Centre and Falmer Sports Complex is available from their site, but please contact us with any queries you may have.
